Rosemary Otto, Untitled 0001, 14" x 18" , mixed media (oil)


78-year-old Rosemary Otto is a self-taught, outsider artist whose work is both a form of creative expression and has helped in her recovery from mental illness.  Born in Germany to an American mother and German father, Rosemary now lives in the house where she was raised: her great-grandmother’s house in Lake Worth, Florida, where she paints in between visits to the nearby senior center and her doctor appointments.
