About the Author:
Hello! I’m Rosalie. I’m an illustrator who specializes in creating captivating hand-rendered visuals that celebrate 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.
Recently, I was honored to be the Artist-in-Residence at Great Smoky Mountains National Park and with the National Audubon Society in Maine. My clients include the Smithsonian and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.
I am also an educator. So far, I’ve enjoyed teaching watercolor & outdoor observation workshops in schools, national parks and REI stores. I’ve also taught tens of thousands of students online as a Top Teacher at Skillshare. My first book, Watercolor in Nature: Paint Woodland Wildlife and Botanicals with 20 Beginner-Friendly Projects, will be published by Page Street Publishing Co. in November 2021.
