About the author

Rose Woodward studied art at The Kent Institute of Art and Design and illustration at the University of the Arts London. In her mid-twenties, while working in design and marketing, Rose started following Buddhism. Subsequently she began to collect Buddhist art. As the collection grew and while looking for inspiration through museum collections and library archives, Rose started to curate her favorite historical pieces to save for future reference. After liaising with other Buddhist friends and colleagues, it became apparent that she had enough material curated to put together a reference book solely dedicated to the story of Buddhist art to inspire future generations of creatives and Buddhists.
