Rowena Mayell Artist


Rowena is a Somerset based artist who is inspired by the natural world.
She is particularly interested in the unnoticed beauty of overlooked, delicate yet determined plants we call weeds.
Rowena collects plants and flowers from her local fields and hedgerows and recreates her own mini meadow in her studio.
Her artwork has a delicate, flowing feel, where plants intertwine and meet.
Building layer upon layerusing a variety of mediums and fine lines, she creates a sense of timelessness and balance.Rhythms, colours, repetition, collage, reflections, puddles, looking up and looking down, all feed into her ethereal pattern like pieces.
