COLLYMORE FRENCH IMPRESSIONIST BRUSH KIT

"Born to a physician and a nurse in a small town in New Jersey, life circumstances brought me to the French Riviera at the age of 9. Then recently widowed, my intrepid mother confidently put her two children in French grade schools, exhorting us to achieve, despite the temporary handicap of the language barrier. I flourished on those sun-drenched Mediterranean hills and beaches, collecting unique memories, rich experiences, lifelong friends and several languages. At the age of 18, uncertain about the practicality of a career in the arts, I dove into a career in the health care field, returning to the U.S. to pursue my degrees. Art aspirations were put on hold for several decades, as I poured energies into the lives of many others. After encouragement from established members of the community of artists residing in this inspiringly beautiful part of the Northwest, and newly an empty-nester with a little bit more time to focus on my passions, I saw my chance to pursue art full time… and I went for it!
I learned about Rosemary brushes during my first art workshop at the Scottsdale Artists’ School with the incomparable artist and instructor CW Mundy, and later learned much more about these top-of-the-line brushes upon meeting Rosemary and a number of other greatly admired impressionist artists at a Weekend with the Masters event. The quality and variety of these extremely well-made and durable brushes, the outstanding customer service and rapid deliveries have kept me returning for years now to the Rosemary & Co. website to try out different series and sizes. The selection of brushes in the Collymore French Impressionist Brush Kit have allowed me to achieve the "lay-it-down-and-leave-it-alone parallel brushstrokes technique" that I am drawn to and to explore edges in interesting ways. I enthusiastically recommend Rosemary brushes to fellow artists at all of my workshops and atelier classes, and have invested in sets of Rosemary brushes for students to use during classes at the Collymore Atelier." - Valerie Collymore
