Illustration of a Mexican Festival taken from the book
" A-Z of Mexico "
Hi I'm Rosa Brown. I always have had a love affair with art, crafts and being creative since I was a child.
My origins come from a culture that is full of colour and beautiful imagery found in ancient monuments, nature, regional costumes and food. Now that I am living in the UK, I am inspired to create art which not only draws upon my Mexican heritage but also the beauty and history of the UK.
My first art business was a hand made wooden craft business making decorations for special occasions. I also offered craft and painting workshops for children and adults which were always popular. Since studying Visual Communication and Illustration here in the UK, I have learned to work by combining digital and traditional art processes and with different media such as textiles, paper, board and wood.
I love working with textures and I am always looking for interesting things from nature such as leaves, flowers, trees, etc whose textures I can use in my work.
Other aspects of art creation I really enjoy is making patterns some of which have been used for wall coverings and textiles.
Flontiere originates from a term of endearment in Spanish which my husband adopted for me after we got married. I thought it was original and creative so I decided to use it as the name of my business.
Where I'm located?
I'm located in the Midlands, UK.
