Roo’s sensitively detailed oil paintings observe and appreciate our relationship with the familiar artefacts in our everyday surroundings. Whether cherished or ignored, the individual belongings we accumulate in our homes – hairpins on a dressing table; a cupboard full of coats; a row of books on a shelf – each resonate with their story and together form an echo of personal and family identity.
Roo specialises in ‘Shelf-Portraits’.   Roo’s ‘Shelf-Portrait’ paintings are a colourful glimpse into individual lives. She is particularly enamoured with the way that we all bring our own story to the reading of a book, and each take a different story away, and her ‘Shelf-Portrait’ paintings are little personal poems, celebrating the significance of our treasured books.
