Rosalind Pierson HS (Co-Founder), MAA, RMS - British Miniature Painter

Rosalind Pierson was born in Tavistock, England and was introduced to painting, both in oils and watercolor, at a very early age. During her school years she began to paint tiny pictures and continued to do so even after she began her studies at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art at Oxford.

Her main interest was in landscape. One of her first Rosalind Pierson: landscape miniature painterminiatures in watercolor was accepted and hung at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition during her second term at Ruskin, and four others were accepted the following year at the Annual Exhibition of the Royal Society of Miniature Painters, Sculptors and Gravers.

Soon she began to concentrate on watercolor, and 1977 saw another of her miniatures hung in the Royal Academy. Her submissions to the Paris Salon were rewarded in 1978 by a Silver Medal, to be followed in 1981 by a Gold Medal. By this time she had been elected to full membership of the Royal Miniature Society. In 1982 she founded, together with Sue Burton, the Hilliard Society of Miniaturists, initially with the purpose of extending appreciation and enjoyment of miniatures to the West Country.

Many of Rosalind's paintings depict the Devon countryside near her home, and in particular her beloved Dartmoor - Britain's "last wilderness"
