"I was born on the water: the elements are in my blood, the sky and sea my forever inspiration. The notion of Immersion fundamentally underpins my practice. I frequently work outdoors, immersing myself in the landscape and finding comfort and meaning in the exploration of its wild, unspoilt terrain. My paintings focus on light and movement; capturing the ever changing, elemental atmospherics of the landscape. Further, the canvases transcend a depiction of place to capture my personal perspective; a way of seeing cultivated by an emotive, instinctually primal connection to the land, sea, sky."
Rose is a contemporary landscape and seascape painter.
Rose grew up on a boat in the River Dart. Inspired by her passion; the sea and sky, she expressively captures her subject in oils.
Graduating from The University of Edinburgh in 2021, she currently works between her studios in Edinburgh and Devon.
Rose's first solo exhibition in Salcombe (2019) sold out. Her work is now collected nationally and internationally.
