Nicola Rose



My paintings are a response to my fascination with wild and ancient places that are at the mercy of the elements. I travel regularly and respond to the power and drama of waves, skies and the edge of land. My starting point is drawing/painting on site in all weathers to express the essential energy of the place and moment, these beginnings are then developed into paintings on canvas in the studio using a mix of oil paint, sand and raw pigments to create works that have many layers, reflecting the timelessness of these wild places and my response to them.
