She studied watercolor under the instruction of Edgar Whitney and taught painting at the Jacksonville Art Museum, now known as MOCA-Jax. Rosamond released Lincolnville: A Sketchbook Journal of St. Augustine’s Historic Neighborhood in 2012, with original artwork highlighting important events, architecture, and prominent people of the area.

Currently she is featured at the Lightner Museum in an exhibition entitled Have Brush Will Travel.
