Bristol born and bred artist and surface designer, Alice Rolfe, spent 10 years studying Fine Art, Sculpture and Print, as well as teaching and exhibiting in London and Europe, before relocating back to her beloved Bristol. On her return, she set up two successful businesses, Rolfe&Wills and Alice Rolfe Illustrations, the latter of which we are very pleased to be welcoming to this year’s market.
Drawing is Alice’s passion, and she is famed for her delicate illustrations of well and lesser-known Bristol landmarks and locations, combining clean lines with vibrant colours. To celebrate her coming to Bath Christmas Market for the first time, Alice has created some brand new drawings of iconic Bath sights, including the stunning Pulteney Weir, the historical Roman Baths, and the famous Royal Crescent.
All Alice’s designs are hand-drawn in her Bristol studio, before being developed into contemporary homewares and gifts, including t-shirts, prints, cards, bone china mugs, coasters and placemats. Being very environmentally conscious, Alice aims to use responsibly sourced materials wherever possible; all her t-shirts are organic, using non-toxic, organic inks, and her cards fully FSC certified, using only recycled card stock.
