‘Forever Love’ Caskets - hand painted by Jessie Rose..

I first began painting caskets in 2015 after the passing of a woman very special and dear to me. In her last days, I asked her if I could paint her casket, feeling in a sad and hopeless situation, that that was one thing I could do for her as an artist. I promised her it would be beautiful, feminine and graceful, and the best representation of the woman she was and the life she lived.

I now have the huge privilege to paint caskets for several leading funeral homes from Auckland to the Far North (links below).

To be able to provide grieving families with the option of a hand-painted casket, a casket with feminine elegance and beauty for a loved one, is a real honour. I make sure every casket is always of the highest possible standard, painting each one with love and the utmost care.

I currently have 4 feminine casket and urn designs available and two unisex design. I paint on eco-friendly NZ pine caskets, available standard and oversize.
