The Story of the Collection
I'm Rosie McElnay. I’m an artist based on the North Coast of Ireland. Two of things I love most are art and this magical island that I am fortunate enough to live on.
Watching the devastating impact that coronavirus has had on our community- the precious families who have lost loved ones and the talented local businesses who have sacrificed their trade for the good of our community - compelled me to take action.
I am “virtually launching” this new art collection - "Unlocked Landscapes” which showcases scenes of our beautiful homeland. In this unique collection I have used maps of this stunning part of the world as my canvas.
The goal is to remind local and international tourists of how stunning our little country is and that when it is safe they will always be welcome back.
As part of the mission of this collection, 20% of all profits will be donated to local food bank charities (in 2020) and I will be highlighting the stunning local businesses that are close to each scene. You can read more about them on my local businesses page. My virtual gallery is live and I will be sharing the story behind each piece with you on my social media pages @RosiesEasel. Please, like the businesses pages in each post and promise me that you will support them when it is safe to do so.
As part of the launch I am also going to be giving away a limited edition print of each scene. If you know someone who loves one of the scenes, as each piece if posted on my social feeds, please tag that special person, like and share my Rosie's Easel page and I’ll be announcing winners every Friday during the launch. The full range of paintings and prints can be viewed at RosiesEasel.com.
I can't wait to share this collection with you, and hope you enjoy my "Unlocked Landscapes" as much as I have loved creating it.
