Rosemary trained at Vancouver's Douglas College in Fashion Design and took a work placement at the 910 Mainland Fashion-Mart. On graduating, she launched a start-up company in custom design apparel. Her life adventure then took her to glean the artistic skills of fabric artists in Japan and pre-economic-zone China. Leaving this far eastern perspective she returned to Canada where she aced a Fibre Arts degree at Concordia University and became part of Montreal's textile industry scene, designing textile prints, producing animated character Disney prints, and opening a garment design and dye-factory for her mass-market line of clothing.
