Hello, and welcome to Rosehip Design. I am a watercolor artist. I’ve been painting since I was a girl, always drawn by the intimacy of observing nature close up. I paint intimate portraits of the birds, beasts and flowers that, all together, make this such a beautiful planet. My hope is that you will like the images so much, that you wish to share them by using one of my cards to write to someone you care about.
Although I was born in New York, the Rocky Mountain West has been my home for more than 50 years. My studies in ecology, botany and biology always included a sketch or a painting of the flora and fauna I encountered while in the field. Encouraged by friends to reproduce my paintings, I developed a line of notecards. The back of each card bears a brief essay describing the natural history of, or a personal experience with, the bird, beast or flower on the front. Cards are blank inside for your own inspired writing or drawing.
While dissecting and reading about the attributes of rose hips (the berry-like fruit left after the petals have fallen from a rose), I noticed how cute they looked all lined up in a row, so I painted them and they became the logo for Rosehip Design.
It’s easy to order cards and calendars from this site, or buy directly from one of the retailers listed. So please go shopping, and stay in touch with your ideas and feedback. Or you can email me.
