Rosi Teaches Body Positivity Through Her Art

Bristol-based illustrator and ceramicist, known simply as Rosi, challenges society’s perception of the female body through her playful and light-hearted creations. Focused on the female body, her artwork explores what it means to be a woman in this hyper-Instegramable age.

“I cover a lot of topics and themes but generally they’re all centered around women and women’s health,” she told Inky Goodness. “As someone who has struggled with body image and the female body I want to share my experiences and shine a new light on certain topics such as body hair and body image.”

Having studied Fine Art at Oxford Brookes University, she currently runs an illustration business from home and works as a graphic designer at a publishing company. “I would love to work solely for myself and be a full-time illustrator and ceramicist,” she admits. “I also hope to have a small studio where I can teach a few workshops.”

Rosi’s Instagram page (which amassed quite the following) mostly features her more personal projects. Those include behind the scenes photos of her ceramics work at various stages of progression. “I think Instagram stories is a great way to communicate with your audience,” she says. “It enables you to ask questions directly and take polls without your audience having to do much. As well as this, it’s great for sharing other people’s work and more personal parts of your day that maybe you don’t want to keep on your feed.”
