At Rose Briar Art it is our mission to provide our clients and patrons with art that is hand-crafted, beautiful, and authentic.
We appreciate the value of beautiful things, and we know you do too. Rose Briar Art studio was created as a way to give voice to the vision and mission of illustrator and surface pattern designer Charlotte MacDonald. Here, it is our delight to think up beautiful and charming designs that are simply begging to situate themselves on your lovely products.
We’ve done the hard work of studying the world; of learning how to capture it in our specific way. We’ve learned to bewitch and beautify so that your vision can become.
"I would say the main difference in my work and process is how I create. I am very spontaneous and intuitive. I don’t like to plan, sketch or over edit. This gives my work a strong, confident, fluid look. It lends to quality “something else” that's very authentic. My personal style focuses heavily on ink. I excel at line art and my illustrations are most distinct and successful when these elements of texture and hand-drawn technique come through."
Meet Our Designer
Charlotte "Char" MacDonald has been illustrating since childhood and has always taken a liking to the old-fashioned look of brush and ink. She endeavors to be well-known for her ink work which is the most notable thing about her signature style. Growing up in the wood and thicket of a southern-Maine valley has inspired much of the art she creates and her philosophy of living.
