"This original art print features a watercolor and ink illustrated map that I created to celebrate the 2020 centennial of the Monongahela National Forest, which protects over 921,000 acres of federally owned land in eastern West Virginia! Featured creatures and landmarks: a native brook trout, red russula mushrooms, Spruce Knob, haircap moss, jack-in-the-pulpit flower, yellow birch tree, Appalachian grizzled skipper, West Virginia northern flying squirrel, Cranberry Glades Botanical Area, Seneca Rocks, and the High Falls of the Cheat. The hiker walking on the Cranberry Glades boardwalk is my sister. :)"

Hello! I’m Rosalie.
I’m an illustrator specializing in creating captivating hand-rendered visuals relating to the natural world.
I use illustration to honor the places and creatures that often go unnoticed. My goal is to remind viewers of the amazing intricacy of our planet. I hope that after seeing my work, people will spend a few more minutes scouring the forest floor for tiny treasures on their next adventure into the woods.
Another passion of mine is creating illustrations that break down educational and scientific information in a way that is engaging to a broader audience. I want to make learning accessible to work toward a deeper collective understanding of how the earth works.
I am also an educator. So far, I’ve enjoyed teaching field sketching, watercolor illustration & outdoor observation workshops in schools, national parks, and REI stores.
