The People

Rosemarie McGrath, Art Director and Owner

Rosemarie McGrath, Art Director and OwnerI have more than 20 years of international experience in hair dressing. I learnt my craft in my home country of Australia where I enjoyed winning numerous hairdressing awards in state, national and international competitions.

My career has taken me around the world working in many major cities in different countries, working on high fashion Catwalk shows, salons and even 5 star cruise liners!

The main reason I set up the Art House Hair Studio was to create a hair boutique that was friendly yet professional offering high quality hair dressing, beauty and art all under one roof.

I enjoy combining both classic and modern techniques and pride myself on giving close attention to detail. I like to create a tailor made hair style that matches each client’s individual needs.

I love running and general fitness, my little dog Rupert and adore a great hot dog with cheese and mustard!  Last summer my spare time was taken up learning how to grow great tomatoes!  I’m looking forward to growing them again this year.

Brooke Venables, Art Director

Brooke Venables, Art DirectorI have been hairdressing for 17 years, beginning my career in Australia where I trained. I have been living in London for 13 years and am skilled in both cutting and colouring. I have worked both inside and outside the salon.

My freelance work began in LA and New York where I spent a year working on magazine shoots, TV and music videos which included high profile artists and directors. I also worked on America's Next Top Model and fashion shoots for bands such as Marshals and TJ Max . I have worked in the US and the UK on magazine covers for Nylon, GQ, Vogue and Vanity Fair.

In the UK I have continued to work in TV and film such as Harry Potter. Music videos with artists Jesse J, and also worked on numerous fashion shows, including Dior and Anthropology.

My work takes influence from current and classic trends and emphasises both commercial and salon style. Working closely with the client I like to create a strong established relationship where I can influence a cut and colour that lasts. I enjoy putting great importance on a client's need to maintain a style that suits them or recommend a complete change that will work.

I love spending time with my beautiful daughter Deia and son Leo and I'm always ready to enjoy the perfect burger!
