Jack Rose

Passionate About Spreading His Art to Others

We first met Jack Rose and his wife Betty when we attended a Craft Show at Rosehill Racecourse in about 1998. Throughout the whole day whenever Margaret looked up to the crowd there he was watching intently. When crowds thinned out at the end of the day Margaret invited him to sit down and have a go. He protested that his wife did that sort of thing and he had his shed. Never the less he accepted Margaret’s invitation and before long he was painting pictures. Betty came back to find out what all the fuss was about and they took home a kit. Jack became quite proficient with the iron and wax and painted many pictures with a charming naivety. A man of few words he demonstrated at many Lions, Seniors and Charity groups as well as at a regular market venue. Until ill health overtook him he was passionate about spreading his art to others.
