About

Shelf Portraits at Roo Waterhouse Art

While sitting by the fire in an old cottage deep in the Lake District I was perusing a shelf of ancient, dog-eared, characterful Penguin paperbacks and thinking about how each book has a personality of its own. No two copies are alike. No two owners are alike. We each bring our own story to the reading of a book, and each find a differing story within.
I worked on a series of paintings of random collections of books found on shelves and this led to many conversations with viewers about which books they would have on their shelf, and so the idea of building up a bookshelf reflecting one’s life and loves evolved, and the Shelf-Portrait was born.
It's just me, myself and I running Roo Waterhouse Art.
I love to spend as much of my studio time as possible painting, mainly focusing on my 'Shelf-Portrait' oil paintings of treasured and bespoke bookshelves.
It is exciting to branch out into selling prints and cards of my work on Etsy, and I'll be adding mugs and Limited Edition Giclee prints soon....
I have always enjoyed being creative. I started up Roo Waterhouse Art part-time in 2010, and now it is my full time business. Very hard work, but I feel very privileged to be able to do what I love for a living :-)
