Rosie has always had an affinity towards palpable objects and since graduating from Newcastle University with a BA Hons in Sculpture, found a special affection for stone. She completed her training in Stone Carving at The City & Guilds of London Art School and has since been awarded The Duke of Gloucester Award for excellence in the field.
Rosie’s practice has always been inspired by the honesty, beauty and permanence of stone. From the freedom of first roughing out a block to the precision and focus of lettering, it is a wonderfully unique skill that she finds pleasure in every day. Rosie produces a wide range of beautiful stonework, all hand carved using the traditional hammer and chisel method.
Her figurative sculptures are inspired by the dynamism and sensuality of the human body with an emerging narrative reflecting her aspirations. She also brings together the permanence of stone with her love of language, creating beautiful decorative letter carvings for your home – personalised & striking wall art and inspirational quotes. The words are sometimes romantic, often playful and always positive. Rosie is now working on a new luxury homeware range.
Rosie works from her studio near Eastbourne and is happy to discuss commissions.
