Connecticut artist Ann C. Rosebrooks' lifelong fascination with patterns is evident in her work over the past nine years. She has exhibited in numerous shows throughout New England and New York, most recently at the National Association of Women Artists annual exhibit in New York City, where she received the Knapp Award.
Rosebrooks’ paintings reflect her need to understand people in their daily lives and to understand the psychological states of mind of those she portrays. She says of her work, “It combines reality with fantasy and invention ... to suit my artistic vision. Humor is often part of my work. Ideas often come to me in dreams or while I'm driving. Much of my work is related to a woman's struggle to balance her creative life with her family, work and social obligations. "
