Rosemary Buczek graduated from Caldwell College, New Jersey, in 1971 with a Bachelors in Fine Arts. She began freelance work from her home and in 1987 formally opened her studio, "The Gilded Quill". Rosemary's love of the Medieval Manuscripts of the Medieval Ages has influenced her designs and use of color. She combines her calligraphic skills with illuminations including gilding techniques to produce resolutions, certificates, hand lettered books and illuminated manuscripts of her own design.
Rosemary's skills have been recognized by the International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers and Teachers of Handwriting (IAMPETH) whereby she achieved the title of "Master Penman", and served two terms as President. Her studio and outstanding work have been featured in newspapers and magazines. She has taught many workshops around the country where she has shared her skills in gilding, drawing and designing with the illuminated letter, as well as painting techniques. This internationally distinguished artist is currently working on lettering, illuminating and illustrating a children's book.
Rosemary and her husband, Steve, have five grown children and now have ten grandchildren.
