Ros was born and educated in Scotland, teaching in Primary Schools for ten years. She moved south in 1985. Two years later she started painting in acrylics and loved the versatility of the paint and the vibrant colours available. For three years she attended Elmers End Art Centre adult education classes.

Ros has exhibited locally at Bromley Civic Centre, Bexley Arts Centre, Elmer's End Art Centre and Widmore Road Centre. Three paintings were hung in successive years at Britain's Painters Exhibitions at Westminster Central Hall and two at the Llewelyn Alexander Gallery in Waterloo. Ros has had three recent solo exhibitions at the Warwick Leadlay Gallery, in Greenwich. She has also recently been approached by The Buckenham Galleries in Southwold, Suffolk, who are now selling a selection of her paintings.
