Rose Fulbright is an artist with a profound family heritage. She is the granddaughter of celebrated artist Susan Williams-Ellis, who was also the founder of world-renowned Portmeirion Pottery. Her great- grandfather, Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, was the great British architect and pioneer of ecological conservation, most famous for his life's work, Portmeirion Village, in Snowdonia. Family ties to the artistic Bloomsbury Set of 1920s London and to patrons of Charles Rennie Mackintosh also run through Rose’s creative ethos and style.
With a life steeped in creativity and innovation, it is no surprise that Rose is an artist dedicated to highlighting beauty in the everyday through decorative arts. Rose was described by British Vogue as “The girl born to design,” in 2015.
Working with a recognisable palette of sophisticated yet energetic and joyous colour, Rose fine-tuned her creative techniques at the Parsons School in Paris and at the London College of Fashion, where she earned a First-Class Honours Degree.
Today, Rose is a multi-disciplinary artist who has an adept ability to create vibrant beauty on any surface. From paintings to pottery, loungewear to furniture, Rose works with the philosophy pioneered by William Morris, then adopted by Matisse and the Bloomsbury Omega workshops, that fine art and decorative arts are and should be intertwined to reach as many people as possible.
“Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be beautiful or believe to be useful.” – William Morris
