After completing an honours degree in Fine Art in 1997, and a Post Graduate Diploma in Museum and Gallery Curation in 2000, Rose Strang worked as an arts curator and lead artist on public art projects until 2012 when she began to focus solely on painting.
In 2018 she was accepted as a professional member of the Society of Scottish Artists (SSA) and in 2020 she was commissioned by The Folio Society to create a series of paintings for their publication of Scotlandís landscape classic; The Living Mountain by Nan Shepherd.
Times art critic Giles Sutherland said of Rose's work in a Times review:
"Rose Strang brings the whole force of experience and love of nature into her work ... You can see the work's been layered, and there's a lot of experimentation, a lot of energy and love."
Rose's work has been shown in galleries around the UK, including public galleries such as the Royal Scottish Academy and City Art Centre in Edinburgh. Her work has also been exhibited in galleries in Berlin and Corte Real, Portugal.
