Are you as in love with the New River Gorge as I am? This original art print features a watercolor and ink illustrated map that I created during my artist residency at New River Gorge National River in Spring 2019. I spent a month soaking up the scenery and trails and community there and fell in love with the place. This map project was so much fun because it encouraged me to get to know the ins and outs of the region and talk to locals about what they love about the Gorge. I hope you like it!
Paper: Printed by a local print shop in West Virginia on 100# textured white felt paper (for the look & feel of watercolor paper!)

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.
