Nicola Rose



Paintings in private collections in:

  • Uk
  • New York
  • Texas
  • Switzerland
  • France
  • Berlin

These works 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. 

I have been fortunate enough in the course of my painting life to be invited to create bodies of work for such as  Winchester and Guildford Cathedrals and Malling Abby in Kent. These public shows run along side my work in Contemporary Art Galleries.
