Rose Dimascio


I have painted and sketched throughout my life. My work reflects my surroundings and love of nature.  As a child I lived in the atmospheric Furness area south of the Lake district and always liked being outdoors and exploring. I returned to the area to do a B.A. Hons in Visual Arts at Lancaster University in 1982.  FIND OUT MORE

Artistic Statement

I am an artist based in Seaton Sluice, Northumberland. Nature, botany, wildlife, myth and history, especially Medieval, are themes often found in my work. I enjoy taking different images and ideas to compose a painting or creating a mood or atmosphere with the use of light and shade. I will do sketches from real life to capture the feeling of a place.

The techniques I use are diverse as I like the freedom to experiment with different paints and surfaces. The resulting work can sometimes be illustrative and sculptural, but I hope there will always be an air of mystery to draw the viewer in to the picture.
