Nia Mackeown


I am a Welsh artist with a passion for painting “en plein air”. Working mainly in oils, I am inspired by many varied ideas and working methods, although I pay special attention to colour, light and imagery of everyday life. I have recently taken the step of working entirely from life which brings with it an interesting set of challenges such as continually changing light or changing weather if working outdoors, and requires one to work quickly in order to capture the subject. I enjoy this style of painting and the often fluid and vibrant results that can be achieved when under such time pressures.
