Baby Garrett

We would like to introduce to you little Garrett Owens who is posing here with a piece of personalize art Handmade by Rosalie made just for him! We created this particular piece before Garrett made his big arrival and his parents had chosen not to find out the gender of their little one who was on-the-way. We made them this neutral painting simply based off pictures of their custom bedding.

The Beginning

The beginning of Handmade by Rosalie is simple. I started making invitations and personalized canvas paintings for family and friends and for gifts. After learning basic graphic design from a very good friend over at I was opened up to a creative world that combined amazing technology with the art and love put in to handmade gifts. I grew up sewing, hot gluing and painting my way through life with my mother as my guide. She definitely gave me the appreciation I have for what we refer to as "the lost arts." I can get lost in a fabric store, immersed in the paper isle of Hobby Lobby and pass hours looking at a paint selection for an idea I have stuck in my head.

Now life is beginning to shift and the season I am currently in is coming to an end while a new one is simultaneously beginning. I would be honored to spend my time making something you will cherish forever. Please send me an e-mail to get started on YOUR creation today!
