Rosemary first learned woodworking during her studies at the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) where it is required to complete woodworking training. Rosemary also had a work-study position at the woodshop helping other students learn how to use the tools. During the summers, Rosemary apprenticed with a finish carpenter. She also spent time at Richard Meier’s architectural model shop making various scale models of the Getty Center and the surrounding 110-acre site out of Malaysian birch wood. Those models are now housed at the Mana Contemporary Gallery in Jersey City, NJ. Besides teaching at Artisan’s Asylum, Rosemary has various personal side projects such as plant stands, bookshelves and outdoor planters. She’s an avid cyclist and general tinkerer.
