Having spent the past 20 years engraving images into a variety of media, the process of taking live, three dimensional impressions from wild leaves, stems and flowers has been a revelation for Rosie. Each tile represents a moment in time and the detail that it is possible to capture is extraordinary.
She views the wild spaces and hedgerows through new eyes and is excited to focus other eyes on the minutiae of every element making up such a small part of our landscape. Without the distraction of colour, the form becomes a thing of far greater beauty.
Rosie will be holding half-day workshops in this and other techniques throughout the summer at Grenaby Art Studios where she is based.
