Rosy Naylor is an artist and curator with an interest in site specificity, ephemerality and lost space.

Her work in the public realm responds to a  specific environment, context or situation using a range of media, setting up a dialogue around the inhabiting of public space, predominantly that of walking edgelands and coastal landscape, and often anonymous.

Her painting work explores ideas of surface and mark making. Inspired by the transcient nature of the sea's edge, tide marks, and of what she calls 'sand mapping'.

with exchange to Maumaus School of Fine Art, Lisboa where she studied conceptual and site specific art
and at University of Brighton 1990-93 Visual Art & Performance (music)

She lives and works in Portobello Edinburgh as an artist and designer.
