From Shropshire with love...
Amy Rose is a Shropshire-based illustrator whose work reflects themes of nature, history and commemoration.
She graduated from Manchester School of Art with a first class honours degree in 2013 and since then her illustrations have found a grounding in the natural and beautiful realm of British flora and fauna.
Inspired also by history and language, the illustrated subjects often deviate from the quotidian, and have their roots in near forgotten medicinal and spiritual British culture. This influence coalesces with that of memento mori, and the interpretaions of vanitas in cultures across the world.
Highly detailed and carefully executed, all her illustrations are hand-drawn using her preferred medium of indian ink.

Amy is also the co-director of the art gallery The Art Vaults in Shrewsbury, Shropshire.
The beautiful Grade II listed building on Fish Street that now hosts The Art Vaults has been home to many different institutions in its five centuries of history. We are privileged to present our first gallery on this lovely cobbled street, with the sole aim of exhibiting both established and promising new artists.
The inherent charm of the building proffers the perfect backdrop to showcase both traditional and modern pieces, and within we exhibit everything from paintings to illustrations to one-off antique finds, carefully sourced from across the country. Aside from traditional artistic media, we also house furniture and lighting, alongside hand drawn cards and unique gifts.
The Art Vaults was designed to be an exhibition of affordable and enjoyable art, and we look forward to welcoming our visitors.
