The best part of the job.

It makes me so happy to receive a little note of thanks like the one below!

It is absolutely the best part of my job to know that something I have created can make someone happy.. big smiles all round!

I especially love creating a surprise commission for a loved one..

I loved creating this pet portrait commission for Lizzie and Gordon showing her happily laid down and in her ‘meerkat pose’ (even more adorable in person, I can assure you!)

I am taking bookings now for pet portraits so please email me at hello@katyrosedesign.co.uk for more details .

Here’s to 2017!

Here’s to #2017 and all the exciting possibilities it will bring!

I wanted to share just a few of my favourite projects from the last year – I love how diverse my job can be and how it continues to challenge and inspire me everyday.

I can’t wait to see what will happen next!

In the heart of the Australian Outback

G’day possums!
I have finally been able to upload my most recent project for the incredible Arkaroola Wildreness Resort in the Flinders Ranges. During my time here in Australia I was lucky enough to discover Arkaroola – a 610sq km, multi award-winning Wilderness Sanctuary, run by the wonderful Sprigg family. It contains some of Australia’s most spectacular mountain views and offers numerous and highly accredited eco-tourism tours. A hidden gem home to over 160 species of birds and the illusive and endangered Yellow-footed Rock-wallaby.
I was commissioned to capture the portraits of Arkaroola’s eight most sighted birds, as a visual guide to be used in the visitor centre on site.

I loved every minute of my time there, an absolute must if you ever find yourself on a 12 hour coach ride through the Adelaide outback..it is worth every second!
