Nia is a Pembrokeshire born artist with a passion for painting “en plein air”.

Showing a keen interest in painting from a young age, she studied Foundation Art at college before earning a place at a London University. However, a change in direction saw Nia become a midwife for 6 years, during which time she spent her spare hours focusing on developing her painting technique and life drawing skills. In 2016 her passion for painting had taken over and she became a full time professional artist, painting the things she loves, imagery of everyday life, of the endearing commonplace, and landscapes tempered with reflection and light.

Nia finds that working from life results in fresh, reactive mark making which helps her capture the essence of the scene. Although mainly working in oils on small panels when painting outdoors, these smaller studies are then often used to produce larger studio works.

We love mixing new works with existing pieces in your collection and this can be a great and easy way to create a gallery wall. Buying contemporary work to sit alongside traditional pieces you may have inherited is a great way to modernise a space while giving the more traditional pieces a new lease of life. Our advice would be to have a common thread that runs between the pieces to tie them together - this could be similar tones or colours, or a theme that runs through all the works.
