Rose Water Waves

Art, Design & Photography

by Roos van Leeuwen


I am a mixed media artist from the Netherlands. My home town used to be Amsterdam where I received my BFA in 2014. For the past few years I have been living and working in Penzance, Cornwall, U.K. My passion for the ocean, especially marine life and the waves drove me to live here in a place close to the sea. I like my 'wind-swept lifestyle and waking up early for a surf!


'Seaweeds washed to shore or drifting along, dreams of waves

and the world underwater.'
