Printmaker Rosemary Kilbourn (born 1931, Toronto) Kilbourn studied at Toronto's Ontario College of Art, then the Slade School of Fine Art in London, England. Upon returning to Ontario, she was commissioned to do a mural for the new dining hall at University of Western Ontario. Along with commissioned portraits, her early works included illustrating two books by brother William Kilbourn and one by Farley Mowat, The Desperate People. Her etchings, often of religious themes, led her to create stained glass works, including one window for St. Bartholomew's Anglican Church in Ottawa. Kilbourn set up in Albion Hills in 1957, and taught around the province in the years thereafter. Among her students were wood engraver Barbara Howard, who had been a friend since college. Other books to which she has contributed include Julian Huxley's Aldous Huxley, 1894-1963: a memorial volume, and Richard Outram's South of North: Images of Canada, with drawings by Thoreau MacDonald (2007), for which she selected the poems and drawings. In 1977, she was elected to the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts, England's Society of Wood Engravers in 2001, and Havergal College's Hall of Distinction in 2004.
