Textile Art & Bookbinding

Rosie Andersen is an artist and author living in South Norfolk. Prior to life taking a more artistic direction, Rosie worked as a therapist and trainer in private practice, prisons, hospices, and with people of all ages in community projects. Rosie is also a published author of three fables. Her intriguing stories inspired by the Suffolk landscape, weave magical tales of mystery, myths and history interwoven with nature and nurture at their heart.

“After a long period away from creative projects, I returned to my textile and bookbinding work in 2020. Following many months of experimenting and brushing up on skills, I began to combine hand-dyed silks with the binding of journals and sketchbooks, and in the process discovering new ways of working and fine-tuning techniques. I am very inspired by the colours and textures within wild landscapes, firstly capturing images, colour and light using photography, which I then use to influence creative textile pieces. In addition to my hand-dyed fabrics, I use many different medium from recycled textiles, paper, paint, dyes, yarns, and threads for both hand and machine embroidery. I am currently working on mixed-media pieces for book covers and also larger pictures, and wall hangings.”
