Rose Brettingham


Growing up on the North Norfolk coast, Rose’s work is rooted in her fascination with, and love of, animals and nature, particularly birds of the local landscape. In her illustrative imagery, she tries to capture their unique characteristics, building simple, subtle stories with humour and charm. Learning about each bird and its habits helps her to form its character, first in a sketchbook and then in clay. A recent graduate on the renowned Ceramics Skills course in Ireland, Rose has moved back to Norfolk to set up a studio in Norwich.
