Today we’re putting the spotlight on the artist behind one of the most popular prints in the Heartland collection - Colombo! Day dream yourself off to some jungle paradise as we chat to the uber talented Rosie Harbottle.
Tell us a little bit about your background - how did you become a print artist?My mother was a fashion designer and collects lots of fabrics and so from an early age I was exposed to lots of colour and pattern. After completing an illustration degree my first job was an in-house print designer where I gained a lot of experience. I've always loved print and pattern so it seems I took a very natural path.What has been your career highlight?I've been self employed for nearly 7 years and I've had many highs as well as some lows along the way. I think whenever I set myself goals to design for certain brands and then it happens is such a boost!
