Rosa is an exhibition of roses illustrated by RHS gold medallist Janie Pirie.  This is a new body of botanical art to coincide with the launch of a book of the same name.  Having had a love of roses from early childhood Janie was inspired to illustrate those that had a name connected to her life. 

Starting with Rosa ‘Buttercup’, a reminder of the carefree summer days playing in the wild flower meadows that surrounded her Buckinghamshire home, through to Rosa ‘Joie de Vivre’, a rose the artist feels encapsulates her own outlook on life.

Some are depicted in a still life format whilst others are more of a pure botanical nature. Worked entirely in coloured pencils these works will appeal to anyone with a love of roses.

During the exhibition, Janie, or a colleague, will be on hand to answer questions and discuss the inspiration behind each painting.
