Rosie Sayers is an artist who portrays jazz, street parades, dance and music, expressing excitement and movement with vibrant colour and line. She trained at Byam Shaw School of Art and Design. After graduating she studied with Cecil Collins. She lives and works in London.

Her earliest influence stems from childhood memories of marching brass bands and Miners' Galas in Durham. Later she found that the emotional impact of the sights and sounds of those events expressing the struggle and triumph of the human spirit against adversity was also evoked by jazz, especially New Orleans Jazz.
The aim of Rosie's work is to express her perception of the earthiness, humility and artistic pride she finds in certain musicians, the intrinsic driving force of jazz and street music and the uninhibited emotional response of those who are brought under its spell. The expressionistic style in her drawing and vibrant colours of her paintings and pastels capture the energy of movement. She is also a portaitist, deriving most of her inspiration from subjects in the world of music.
Her work has been shown in many solo and mixed exhibitions including the Royal Academy and the Mall Galleries in London, and has been selected for public display in the art collections of London Hospitals as well as for private collections around the world.
