Rhian Wheeler is a self-taught artist working primarily with oil and mixed media.

Her paintings are a process of exploration. She take cues from patterns that are created organically through nature, such as the texture of bark on tree trunks, the impressions that moss forms on the surface of water and the markings on stones or rock surfaces.

She calls her paintings landscapes, although this is really as a point of reference, as she is much more concerned with the colour and texture on the canvas. Although she often use photographs as her starting point for inspiration, the final painting usually bears little resemble to the original image.
