Roosenboom was born in Schellingwoude now in Amsterdam. He studied painting with Andreas Schelfhouf, a leading Romantic landscape painter.
He married the daughter of his master, Maria Schelfhout. The couple had four children. Their daughter Margaretha Roosenboom was a pupil of her father and grandfather and became an important flower painter.
In 1846 Roosenboom was elected to the board of directors of the Haarlem Drawing College (Teeken-Kollegie), which had as its motto 'Art be our Goal' (Kunst zij ons Doel). Between 1826 and 1876 the artist showed at exhibitions in The Hague and Amsterdam.
Roosenboom became very successful and the good sales of his paintings enabled him to travel a lot. For some time he collaborated with the Belgian animal painter Eugene Joseph Verboeckhoven.
