Rosie explores what it means to be a living thing, capturing the wonder of the human and animal body, predominantly through intricate copper plate etchings. Using this traditional printmaking technique gives a voice of the past, which is suggestive of the artists’ choice of a fragile subject matter; death, birth, extinction and growth.
Growing up in East Sussex, the artist is now based in Bristol, and her practice and work in the arts there has been ever growing. After studying her Degree in Drawing and Applied (Fine) Arts at University of the West of England (2014) she has been a mover and shaker in the arts of the City, including co-founding new large artist studio space, Estate of the Arts, being nominated as ‘One of Bristol’s Most Influential’ young people in 2016 by Rife Magazine and commended as an ‘outstanding artist to watch’ by Wells Art Contemporary. This enthusiasm has also allowed her dedication to making art to flourish, exhibiting internationally (the Artist about to head off for an art residency in Hanover, Germany) and creating more works than ever in her new print studio in the aforementioned art space.
The artists works are all lovingly framed by the artist herself in gilded FSC woods and available unframed also, priced between £25 – £500.
