Rosie has been involved in various feminist causes and movements; such as raising awareness for FGM, creating events for gender equal pay. She has worked with organisations such as ClitRock, leading to certain part of her artwork being donated to the causes and being held in exhibitions in the V & A, one of which was a patchwork of vaginas that will be on display at Circo.
Her work is full of character, continually playful and quite frequently erotic. Rosie tends to work in pen and ink as well as carving a niche for herself within the fashion industry for her freehand and sewing machine embroidery techniques.
Rosie now works as a freelance illustrator and embroiderer, selling her artwork on her website http://www.rosiebeard.com/ in the form of calendars, Christmas cards, cushions, phone cases and more.

Rosie has also worked with the amazing embroidery designer and founder of the British Fashion and Textiles Museum, Dame Zandra Rhodes.
Rosie has recently held an exhibition of her illustrations at the V & A Museum, and various art galleries in London. Hosting live life drawing classes in Soho and East London. She still keeps a close relationship with fashion but focuses mainly on illustrations and embroidery.
On the day, Rosie will be hosting a illustration and fashion drawing masterclass between 4pm and 5pm. The event will be free, but advanced booking is necessary. Please RSVP to email@example.com
