Rosalind Stoddart trained at the Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts and worked mainly in the areas of sculpture and printmaking. In 2005, she moved away from her artistic practice and became the founding director of a museum in Northampshire which exhibition works of British modernist art.
Stoddart has written of her work: “I am interested in the repetition of the art object, common both to printmaking and sculpture. Using the ordering principles of geometry, a simple motif produces a complex pattern in repetition. The essential simplicity, even severity of the characteristic shapes appearing in my work is a consequence of a gradual reworking of forms which can be thought of as analogous to the way in which the sea rounds a pebble”
