She became a professional sculptor in 1992, translating the skills used in restoration into her sculpture of animals and people. During her early training she had studied works of art in the classical tradition but as she went on to develop her own style she found greater inspiration in the more expressive and impressionist sculptors.

In a departure from the tradition of the earlier animalier sculptors, her works are not mere representations of the animals that slavishly capture every detail of anatomy and proportion. Instead of this Rosemary developed a more relaxed modelling technique. She decided that her art was in conveying the inner workings of her subjects: her aim is to capture the immediate spark of energy, an expression, the attitude and movement of the piece so that she communicates the true spirit of the subject to the viewer.

With her unique ability to understand and convey the character of her subjects her work grew in popularity. In 1996 she began to achieve recognition and international acclaim for her highly innovative and original style of working. She was commissioned to cast several pieces in bronze by the Carl Schlosberg Gallery in Los Angeles and the Polak Gallery in London. With galleries representing her work in London and in America, she has been able to uncover a much wider audience, with her works sought be collectors in all parts of the world. Her sculptures feature in a number of notable collections in the UK, New Zealand, the West Indies and the United States.

Most of the works shown are described as bronze or bronze resin and can be ordered in either medium. Rosemary usually prduces an edition of between 25 and 35 pieces in resin and a smaller edition in bronze. The resin has the advantage of being cheaper to produce and makes her work accessible to a larger audience than it would if she only cast the pieces in bronze.
