R O S I B A X T E R
is a gallery based artist and calligrapher working in Lincoln.
Her product range includes decorative floral canvases, formal and contemporary calligraphy with gilding, hand painted wedding stationery and greetings cards.
Using a variety of pens, nibs, inks, paints, handmade papers etc. she creates both contemporary and traditional lettering, a time consuming and technically demanding practice that exudes the care and detail once bestowed upon the written word, now largely lost to technology.
Driven by the challenge of precision and a fascination with the endurance of medieval manuscripts, her work displays a profusion of colour, gold leaf and lettering.
She has created numerous commissions including a Freedom of the City Scroll and all forms of hand lettered and gilded artworks.
Former clients include Selfridges, Fortnum & Mason, Fenwick of Bond Street, Royal Air Force, Lincoln Cathedral and Castle.
