"My paintings are an expression of a playful world I never had. Somehow I missed my childhood, went straight into marriage and motherhood and much of the fun in life seemed to pass me by. Now, as I sit and work in my studio, I can take my most excessive imaginings for a walk in complete safety and do all the naughty things I might like to have done." Rosa Sepple
"There is a long running conundrum - "Are artists born or made?" Many contradictory views are held but I favour the one expressed by the writer and film director, Woody Allen, who said; "You can work and work and work, but if you don't have it inborn, then it's a hopeless pusuit." Rosa Sepple is surely a textbook example of inborn artistic talent. Sepple's affinity with other painters is not solely the result of eclecticism; the observant will see echoes of Marc Chagall (the flying figures) and perhaps even a suggestion of John Piper (in some of her vivacious architectual scenes). However, her images are certainly not flaccid imitations - far from it. Sepple has developed a highly distinctive style that is intensely personal." Anthony J. Lester - Member of International Association of Art Critics and Fellow of the Royal Society of Art
