ARTIST INFO

Cole's paintings reflect her interest in Art History, provenance and the role women have played in both.  She regularly looks to women artists & collectors of the past for affirmation, guidance and inspiration.  She paints homes, not least because they are a realm of women, an area unlike most others where they are authored by women.  Though people are rarely seen in her paintings, she believes the domestic interior contains considerable biography & human emotion from grief to celebration seen through the objects on the mantlepiece or the paintings on the wall.  

Cole began a Foundation at Wimbledon Art School and went on to study Art History at St Andrews University.  She enjoys reading a picture, and as such likes her work to operate on different levels - the first simply an interior - the second the decoding of allusions and objects.   

While there is an obvious preoccupation with content in the pictures focus is given to the emotional impact of colour and physicality of paint. Cole works equally in oils as well as gouache & watercolour as they convey light and mass so readily.  

In 2019 she set up Minerva Workshop, in London which organises talented artists from up and down the country to give workshops and masterclasses.  She also runs a weekly art group.  

In 2021 she was elected an Associate Member of the Royal Watercolour Society.
