Rowan Huntley is a far-travelled, Gower-based artist. Her work is centred around the incredible coast on her doorstep, in addition to the snow-bound realms of Antarctica, Greenland and the Alps. It embraces, at its core, an intense enthusiasm for ice, mountains and the natural environment: from ice-age geology on local Gower beaches to vulnerable frozen habitats around the globe. Rowan has a background in representational painting, which reflects the beauty of the landscape. However, the recent completion of an MA in Fine Art Contemporary Dialogues has inspired exploration of these compelling subjects in a multitude of fresh ways. Using innovation, philosophy and an array of exciting materials in addition to paint, her creativity is advancing in new directions, which she looks forward to sharing.
North Wind Studio is set in a pretty garden in the quiet village of Pennard. Visitors are warmly welcomed and can enjoy a chat about her working practice, inspirations and adventures, or browse original work undisturbed in an adjacent Gallery space. Rowan is a Visit Swansea Bay Partner and an Associate Member of the Alpine Club.
