In recent years, Nina Brooke has been developing her creative practice and honing her packing skills, to compliment a more nomadic lifestyle as a Traveling Artist.

"I finally feel like I'm reaching that goal. My paintings are becoming more connected to specific locations, and I am working on a number of ambitious collections, which will be inspired by my recent travels to Bali, Hawaii and Sri Lanka. Each place creates a very different set of memories, and the colour, light and atmosphere of the sea and landscape affects me differently. 

Alongside these tropical travels, Cornwall remains a key influence upon Nina's work and it will always be a place she returns to for inspiration. The Cornish coastline, particularly around Rock and Polzeath provides a continuous stream of source material.

To find out more about what inspired Nina's recent travels and to see a selection of finished works and reference studies, please follow the links below. If you would like to find out the price or availability of any of these new pieces, please contact  us to request a list of available works (which we will share with you first, simply sign up to our newsletter at the bottom of this page!)
