Rosemary Wright is an artist, professor, dean, author and designer of Japanese gardens. She holds an A.B. from Indiana University in Design and Art History, an M.A. and Ph.D. from New York University in Sculpture and Aesthetics and Cross-Cultural Aesthetics, respectively.

Wright has taught at the Corcoran School of Art and Design; the Maryland Institute College of Art; the Cranbrooke Academy; the Pratt Institute; and the Cooper Union. She has lectured in schools of art in France, Italy, China and Korea as well as schools of art in Hokkaido, Honshu and Kyushu.

Wright has lived in the Japanese Islands three different times for a total of about 13 years. The first time was on Okinawa, 1963-65, where she designed her second Japanese garden in collaboration with an Okinawan resident, a respected gardener,  whom she  knew only as Papa san. At that time, Wright also worked and showed
with the Tsuboya Potters, a clan of five families which have been making a pottery style distinctive to Okinawa since the 1200s

Wright’s second stay in Japan was the year 1991 when she was a Senior Fulbright Research Scholar to Japan doing research in the cross-cultural psychology of creativity, while  on sabbatical from her post as Assistant Dean of the School of Art at the Cooper Union in New York City. That research was summarized in Dr. Alan Roland’s publication: “Cultural Pluralism and Psychoanalysis, the Asian and North American Experience”, 1996, and was continued into doctoral work at New York University.
