Muriel Cole


All for the love of colour
Cornwall based Muriel Cole began an intensive exploration of painted colour and form some ten years ago. Essentially self taught, she started by making decorative cards, fell in love with water-colour and, following a trip to Cuba, began to produce a series of powerful, exotic paintings, conjuring the heat and colour of a country far from her native south west.

“I just love colour and shape and get a huge inspiration from the area where I live. But I have never wanted to produce scenes of fishing boats and harbours. Other artists do that really well, but it’s not for me”.

Muriel’s paintings reflect her personal journey, sometimes discovering quite dissimilar styles and techniques.

Recently, the use of a roller rather than brushes has led to her latest works featuring areas of texture and colour spread across 
the canvas.

“My work can be really varied, but in one way or another it’s driven by colour and form. Producing the paintings gives me huge pleasure”.
