Nicola Wakeling is a Scottish landscape artist from the Northeast of Scotland. Her work is inspired by the beauty of the Outer Hebrides and frequently features North Uist. We are delighted to offer free worldwide delivery on her paintings.
“Nicola’s work is simply breath-taking and can transport you straight to the gorgeous shores of Scotland.” Rose, Gallery Manager.
Customers are often in wonderment when first seeing Wakeling’s paintings due to the sweeping sands and miles of blue skies that her work is known for.
My work is mainly landscape based and is inspired by the beaches of the West Coast of Scotland. Anyone who has ever stood on a Hebridean beach will recognise the emotions that my work tries to invoke from the vast expanse of sea and sky to the subtle colour and movement changes that come with the turning tide. I use mixed media and various techniques including wax and household paint in order to achieve the many different textures that are found on the shore.
