Essex born Nicola Wakeling moved to Scotland when she was just one year old, a move which has heaviliy influenced her work - finding her inspiration in the landscapes of the Outer Hebrides.
Preferring to paints dark and brooding landscapes, she says "The white beach and turquoise seas on a sunny day are far too glaring and positive". Reflective, meditative, and wonderfully dramatic, her work is a fitting tribute to the tradition of landscape painting in Britain.
“It is the sheer scale of the landscape in Scotland that stirs me to paint. Walking on a Hebridean beach with the wind on my face, I look up at the limitless sky and feel tiny. I want my paintings to communicate a sense of immersion and connection within a landscape.”
