Rowan The Artist

I am a visual artist who creates on Gadigal Land, in Sydney’s vibrant Inner West. A proud Antipodean, much of my inspiration is drawn both from my native country, New Zealand, and from my adopted country Australia.

While a curiosity and thirst for new techniques has led me down many paths - acrylics, collage, screen printing and stitching are just a few examples – the success of Little Rowan Redhead is in large part due to my enduring love of printmaking. I try to carve or print every day and I love everything about the process: from the intense focus required when carving to the sound of the ink being rolled out to the thrill of the final reveal!

My art is fresh, bold and colourful, often featuring Australian wildlife or botanical motifs. My aim is Australiana without the kitsch, art that brings some colour and joy into homes, perhaps with a touch of nostalgia or even a little tongue-in-cheek. 

I believe strongly in the handmade movement, and nearly all of my products are made in- house. Whether it's my watercolour paintings and prints, linocut prints, hand-carved stamps, tea towels or my distinct range of cards and stationery, all products are in keeping with a firm commitment to the principles of small-batch production, local partnering and sustainable joyful art.

The Teacher

Since 2017 I have taught blockprinting and watercolour workshops around the country in corporate, private and public settings. I find teaching to be incredibly rewarding - helping others to flex their creative muscles is as satisfying as pulling off a successful print!

The same joy of making and the desire to share this passion with others led me more recently to write a book on blockprinting. Modern Blockprinting (2022) is a projects-based arts and craft book designed to make printmaking fun and accessible to all.

The Person

I am fuelled by a creative drive that has been with me from childhood. This hasn’t always been my day job – I have a PhD in International Relations! However, a family health scare in 2012 was a watershed moment that put me on a path to becoming a full-time artist.

I live in the very colourful and creative Inner West, Sydney and I am proud to be part of the leadership team of Sydney Made, a volunteer-led non-for-profit organisation that serves local makers and designers.
