Rosies Illustrations

Hi my name is Rosie and I am a freelance illustrator based in Chichester, West Sussex. I live with my husband Richard and our lop eared dwarf rabbit Coco. I work in my home studio in Birdham, and when the sun is shining I love to get out in the garden to work with Coco bunny hopping around my feet.

I trained at Northbrook College in Worthing and gained my HND in illustration in 2003. During my training I began to develop my style of 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. My first big commission was for the Girl Guides, creating ‘How to’ illustrations for their Brownie Annual. Since then I have worked on a number of projects including in house advertising for John Lewis and logo design for local businesses.

I have recently been transferring my images onto ceramics using decals and I am now making my own range of homeware. I sell these at local craft fairs and in my online shop, 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 reference for my drawings which then can be transferred onto bowls, mugs, coasters etc. making a lovely gift.

I design cards, invitations and prints for a range of uses and again enjoy personalising them for individual customers.

If you are interested in purchasing any of my work, please visit my online shop or contact me via my website to request individual commissions.
