Rosemary & Co. Brushes
I am proud to be a new U.S. Representative of Rosemary & Co. Artist Brushes. These brushes have been hand-made by a small family company in Yorkshire, UK. for over thirty years. While I was ordering brushes from their shop in England one day, I thought, “Why don’t I ask them if I could be a distributor for them?” My timing was just right, and here I am. These brushes are wildly popular with artists—studio and plein air. They feel so right in your hand and they seem to last longer than other brushes. And the price is definitely right.
Look around on the internet for Rosemary brush reviews, you’ll see people singing the praises of this company’s brushes.
Among others, Richard Schmid recommends them.
Rosemarys brushes are my choice as the perfect instruments for painting. No other brushes in the world quite compare to them for performance,superb quality and variety ( and they get 55 mpg on the highway !). www.richardschmid.com
(NB: Richard tends to favour the ‘Masters choice’ range ser 278 ,279 & 276 alongside the series 66 Kolinsky Filberts and the ‘Ivory’ range for strength and durability.)
Rosemary Jackson, the owner, has developed some lines of brushes by sitting down and “thrashing out” ideas with these artists. For example, the artist Dave Shevlino wanted a brush that was a cross between a filbert and a flat.
"I wanted a brush that has the feel of a flat for laying in swathes of paint, but with slightly tapered fibers for getting a softer edge, the way you would with a filbert." - David Shelvino 2014
Voila! See the Ivory Flat Curved Edge brushes. Because they are a small company, truly interested in bringing the finest brushes they can bring to the artist, they can do this. Their business is not just “business”, but a creative, ongoing improvement of quality brushes with the artist in mind.
Everyone at the company is so friendly and willing to help artists. Never hesitate to contact them, And they have a sense of humor (humour…) at Christmas they dyed some of the Ivories green and called them the Evergreen line.
