Alice Rolfe is a Bristol based artist and surface pattern designer.
Alice grew up in Bristol, living just behind the much-loved Gloucester Road. Achieving a distinction during her Foundation year at UWE, she felt encouraged to continue on with her artistic passion and gained a First at Wimbledon School of Art, 2007. Finishing with an MA from Kingston, she spent 10 years studying Fine Art, Sculpture and Print, teaching and exhibiting in and around London and Europe. Drawing is Alice’s passion, so moving on from the conceptual world she came back home to Bristol and set up two artistic businesses, Alice Rolfe Illustration and Rolfe&Wills - a surface pattern and design company.
With a focus on interesting colour combinations and a clean line, her drawings are vibrant, modern and fresh.
All designs are hand drawn and then developed and made into products in her studio in Easton, Bristol.
The environment is important to Alice. All her t-shirts are organic, responsibly sourced, and printed with non-toxic, organic inks. The cards are FSC certified, and the prints are made from recycled card.
The full range includes Prints, cards, bone china mugs, coasters, placemats and t-shirts – so there is something for everyone!
“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.”
