Hi my name is Rosie and I am a freelance illustrator based in Pagham, West Sussex. I live with my husband Richard and work in my home studio at the back of our garden.
I trained at Northbrook College in Worthing and gained my HND in illustration in 2003. During my training I began to develop my style creating my illustrations through line drawings which I then colour digitally using a blend of flat colour and collage. I'm always looking for different materials and textures to use in my next project. I also make and use my own paper from time to time.
I have a simple style and enjoy drawing animals turning them into fun characters. I have recently been transferring my images onto ceramics using decals and I am now making my own range of homeware, along with greeting cards, tags and prints.
I can also personalise these items for individual customers. For example, I create a character of a family pet using photographs as a reference for my drawings which then can be transferred onto bowls, mugs, coasters etc. making a lovely gift.
If you are interested in purchasing any of my work, please visit my shop or message me to request individual commissions.
