Rosie Wesley is a graduate from the University for the Creative Arts, Farnham with a BA (Hons) in Metalwork. She lives and works in the New Forest and has a studio at the back of her gallery Chalk's on Lymington High Street

With a focus on texture and form, Rosie’s sculptural works are individual, site-responsive pieces to locations within the New Forest, where she grew up.

Rosie works with direct burn-out casting techniques to produce replica textures of bark which she combines with components based on the landscape’s negative spaces. Markings and drawings on the pieces reflect her personal interactions with the space.
