Artist Rosanna Burford’s paintings are comprised of realistic compositions with surprising abstract details and texture.

As a child Rosanna painted at a window overlooking city gardens in London. Since then she has lived in many countries, including California and Switzerland. Today Rosanna paints in her studio overlooking city gardens in Frankfurt, Germany.

Rosanna holds a M.Sc. in Chemistry as well as further business education and has spent a few years as a management consultant in the pharmaceutical industry. Her worldwide travels during this time continue to inspire her art. In parallel, she has always taken weekly painting classes with renowned local artists developing her skills and style.

Rosanna now divides her time between the art studio and her career coaching practice where she supports other young professionals to build a career that suits them.

Art work

Rosanna’s work captures the deeper levels of our world’s beauty studying light, contrast and color. Whilst this beauty is sometimes captured in portraits, most of Rosanna’s work focuses on gardens and the human attempt to capture the exotic.

“Every brushstroke is a learning experience, stretching my abilities in an attempt to create pieces of true value through hard work, many layers of love, imagination and paint.”

I paint using only highest-quality materials. My work is on canvas, wooden panel, or acid-free, age-resistant paper. I use acrylic paints from brands Golden, Winsor and Schmincke as well as oil paints by Schmincke and oil pastels by Jaxon. All paintings are varnished (satin) to protect the paint for generations to come.

All paintings are shipped flat, lovingly wrapped in film, bubble wrap and kraft paper, then shipped in a thick package. You will receive a confirmation email after purchase and again when I ship your order. The order invoice and a handwritten note is included in the package.

Shipping costs and duration vary depending on the piece and destination country. I always include insurance and tracking. Contact me for an estimation.

I can have your piece professionally framed for you. I will invest significant time and effort in getting the right frame for your piece, taking your home into account.

If your chosen piece is on paper, I recommend framing behind glass. Canvas pieces, however, can be hung without a frame for a more casual look.

I have three of Rosanna's paintings in my Parisian apartment. Visitors always admire the art!
