Rosi Gates


Textile Artist

artist website

Rosi creates complex pictures of landscapes, fence posts, seascapes, lighthouses and even chickens using free motion thread sketching, hand stitching, painting, free motion applique, fabric manipulation & eco dyeing.

She is inspired by the obvious and the hidden beauty in the world around her and hopes others can be inspired by this beauty of creation.

Often working from her own photographs, Rosi loves the challenge of working in textiles using fabric, paint and stitching to add detail and capture character in her unique textile pieces.

In 2012 Rosi completed a Visual Arts certificate in textiles, and joined the Collective in 2017.



There’s so much to look at, we suggest you come and browse. If you just can’t choose between the 2 or 3 (or more) items you simply have to have, why not take a moment to sit down and relax, and have lunch or coffee at one of the cafes just next to our gallery. And when you come back in, you’ll know exactly which work of art is right for you.

Come and find us in Gay's Arcade, inside Adelaide Arcade in Rundle Mall, Adeaide. We’d love to see you.
