, and winner of the People’s Choice Metro Gallery Art Award
. Rose enjoys laughing, hanging out with her family, loves ALL animals great and small and dreams of being a guest judge on Ru Pauls Drag Race.
We asked Rose a few questions so you can know her better, so please read a short interview below and enjoy the illustration no1 featuring our jumpsuit.
Where did your love of painting and illustration come from?
As a child I was fascinated by and consumed by my senses. Touching, feeling, smelling and seeing everything. As an artist, these experiences drive my creative passions.
What do you like most about what you do?
I have complete freedom to pursue and do what ever I like artistically. I also get to collaborate with some amazing designers, artists and brands that are driving ethical and sustainable fashion which I am passionate about.
Who or what inspires you as an artist?
Everything and anything! I especially love the high glam 60s era of Hollywood and anything cute and kitsch.
Where do you see yourself in a few years
I have been incredibly fortunate throughout my career, and have already achieved many of my initial goals. I now hope to further refine and build upon my experiences and establish myself as a leading illustrator and fine artist.
