“After years of living abroad Nicola Mosley now lives in Cornwall. Mosley has lived in Hong Kong, Paris and Texas but her love of the coastline has played a fundamental role in her art and life. This appreciation is abundantly evident as we look across her works. Their simplicity is void of similarity, each piece has it’s own character and mood.
Mosley’s power of observation enables a concise approach with complimentary tones interrupted by bright streaks of light and desolate landscapes broken up by dark bands of land. The vast skies in thick milky brushstrokes are met with rich earthy tones of earth and sea to create poetic scenes of Cornwall. The emotive quality to Mosley’s work is palpable.” Beside The Wave Gallery………….
“Predominantly a painter of the coast I am constantly drawn to the horizon, where the sea meets sky or where sea meets land, and by the special qualities of light and elemental weather, particularly of the Cornish coastline where I live. My process is one of using multiple layers of oil glazes to achieve depth of light and colour, while using the palette knife for added texture and definition. Painting for me is a contemplation of a place, frequently returning to the same location to paint.” Nicola Mosley

I was born in Hong Kong was born in Hong Kong and spent my childhood living by the sea which has had a huge influence in
my life and work. I moved to Paris in 1990 where I studied at Parsons School of Design. In 1997 I moved to Houston
Texas and studied Fine Art at The Glassell School of Art, the teaching wing of The Museum of Fine Art and exhibited
extensively in solo and selected group exhibitions.
I moved to Cornwall in 2014 and took on a studio at Krowji in Redruth. I studied at The Newlyn School of Art
completing the fourteen week landscape painting course and in 2016 I studied at Falmouth Art School's Summer Intensives.
In 2017 I became an Associate Member of Penwith Gallery in St. Ives and have exhibited in their selected group
exhibitions. In 2020 I moved from my studio at Krowji to work from my new studio overlooking Falmouth harbour. My
