A little bit about me...
Rosie Philpott (BA Hons)
After graduating from Worcester University with a degree in both Fine Art and English Literature, I am now working as a freelance artist / illustrator. As a youngster I revelled in writing stories and bringing these to life through drawing and words. As I have grown this passion has not diminished and I continue to return to childhood fantasies through illustration and creative writing.
I am regularly commissioned to produce greeting card designs and paintings for children's bedrooms, prints of which are available at the local gallery 'Nice Things' in Droitwich Spa. http://www.nicethingsgallery.com/
I have also exhibited in the 'Jinney Ring Craft Centre' following my appearance on the BBC program 'Paul Martin's Handmade Revolution'. (See the Exhibitions and Events page for more details).
My "Wonky Droitwich" painting, a watercolour, ink and pen piece of Droitwich Spa's high street has caused a stir! A limited number of prints (out of 250) in sizes A3 and A2 or larger are now available to purchase - please contact for more details. See the painting on 'Local Views' page.
I am the Artist in Residence at St. Peter's Primary School in Droitwich Spa and a couple of years ago took part in their 'Arts Week', working with children from all year groups to create 'Superhero Olympic Athletes' in watercolour and pen. Last year I worked with Year 1, teaching them how to draw their houses and other buildings. The children all thoroughly enjoyed it and really got into using their imagination, having lots of fun as well as learning the basics of watercolour and drawing.
This year I worked with the pupils to create a Stain glass window for the entrance of the school based on Saint Peter. All of the children submitted their won designs and I combined them all into one image. A selection of pupils then helped me painting it.
I have also visited the children at Witton Middle School.
I am now selling personalised prints and original paintings for children's bedrooms. I feel my illustrative style is suitable for a variety of purposes from individual commissions to greetings cards, portraits and book publication.
If you feel my work is suitable for your requirements or have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me via email on email@example.com
I have a stall during this main event of the festival selling prints of local views, children' prints and greetings cards.
