Rosa Butler

Rosa is an illustrator and Printmaker, currently based in Cumbria. After studying her art foundation in Newcastle, Rosa went on to study Illustration at Camberwell College of Arts. During this time Rosa explored a range of mediums, with an emphasis on screen printing. However, completing her final year in the pandemic meant she began to consider other more accessible mediums, such as textiles and lino printing.

Leading on from her dissertation on intimacy and the female nude, her work often explores the human form and its place in 21st century life. Rosa is fascinated with pattern and often explores this using a limited colour palette. She loves people watching, so most of her work evolves from observational drawings, photographs or life drawing.
