  • About the work

  • About the artist

Colour is the master stroke and these colours can be vibrant and bold with vivacious jewel-like colours drawn from nature and her own internal landscape while the subtle blues and greens of the sea and sky recur in many of her paintings.

Born in 1984 in Luxembourg to British parents, Elinor Rowlands (FRSA) is a visual, sound and word artist who currently lives and works in London.
