Rosalind ‘Ros’ Grimshaw FMGP (1945-2020) was the daughter of a German-Jewish refugee. She studied fine art at Brighton, Ravensbourne and Hornsey before moving to Bristol, where she trained in stained glass with Joseph Bell & Sons. Despite being diagnosed with Parkinson’s in the early 1980’s Rosalind continued creating her much applauded works over the next 35 years, at times using sheer concentration to overcome her tiredness and uncontrollable shaking, and always doing the cutting and choosing of the glass herself.
