Meet the Artist

Rosalyn Burroughs

I am a young designer and have never been involved with something like this before so being part of this trail was a brilliant experience to get to work in the shared studio with the other artists and learn more about sculpture painting. I am a big lover of History so this sculpture including many book titles about York was a brilliant opportunity for me to learn more about such a historic city!
