Ros Wise @ Nature in Art
Sep 27 – Oct 2 all-day

Artist in ResidencePrassurny Meadow

Ros Wise is based in Gloucestershire and began to paint seriously in 1980. ‘My main inspiration is the Natural World. I began by studying single plants and flower heads in detail and traced their change and evolution through the seasonal year. At the moment I am painting less botanically and painting plants where they naturally grow whether in gardens or wild spaces.’
