Brush Reviews And Advice – When Daggers Are Drawn

As with many of our brushes at Rosemary & Co, we rely on the world’s top artists to tell us what they need and work hard to make the specific brush for them. At the beginning of 2015, Australian artist, Liz Steel contacted us and asked if we could make a brush shorter than the sword liner (a dagger brush), but in the larger sizes, and suitable for travelling.

When Faith And Art Intertwine – Iconography Through Art

There is a beautiful Hebrew tradition called, “Hiddur Mitzvah”. This ancient practice, dating back to the Babylonian captivity, interprets a passage from the book of Exodus to mean that believers should glorify God, “in a beautiful way”. In other words, art can and should be, an intimate act of worship. This profound concept inspires me daily. My faith and my art intertwine for a single purpose, and an audience of one.
