Artwork by Tamsin Rosewell

Tamsin Rosewell is an artist, historian, broadcaster and bookseller. After 15 years working both in Parliament as a researcher and for the British Government on Whitehall as a Civil Servant, she joined the team at English Heritage working at Kenilworth Castle in Warwickshire, the scene of the great romance between Elizabeth I and Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. She has also worked at Coventry Cathedral, leading tours of a site on which everything from the Anglo Saxon landscape, through to the art of John Piper and Dame Elizabeth Fink is interesting and historically important. Tamsin hosted the Folk Show for Radio Warwickshire for three years, covering areas of folklore in music as well as tackling themes such as songs written during and about war time, political folk songs and the portrayal of religion and belief in song. She wrote and presented a three part series about the work of William Blake for Resonance FM in 2015. Her latest documentary series is about the history of the idea of apocalypse, also written and produced for Resonance FM. When she is not broadcasting, lecturing or painting Tamsin works for 50 year-old independent bookshop, Kenilworth Books as a bookseller and review writer. She also lectures on the History of Ghostlore, The History of Chocolate (having trained as a chocolatier while living in Belgium) and on Elizabethan Horticulture and Gardens.

She works mainly in ink on canvas, and owns the most spectacular collection of inks and liquid pigments from all over the world. But she has been known to just use a pencil.
