Artist statement: Roos Schuring is an award winning contemporary plein air artist living in The Netherlands. "In the last 30 years of painting I found what makes me most happy. Outdoor painting is a synergy between nature and painting resulting in surprise and fast forward learning. This keeps it all very interesting to me." Various galleries represent her work. Her paintings have been purchased by hundreds of national and international collectors. Numerous articles, in books, magazines and newspapers show a very passionate artist and weather tv has been fond of the extreme plein air circumstances, that didn't keep her from painting in rain, storm and snow. "I witness the changes of each season in detail and I love each. I paint plein air all year round." Having decided to become a painter at a very young age, Roos Schuring studied Graphic Design ('91-'97) aiming to earn a steady income. Her art business was founded in 1996. After a few years combining the two, she made a turn to painting full time, 14 years ago. The last 10 years have been dedicated to plein air painting exclusively. Roos Schuring is much appreciated for her loose brushwork, mixtures of greys and natural palette. Her fearless attitude while painting under (extreme) weather circumstances, brought lot's of visibility on various platforms, such as in articles in newspapers and magazines, on tv and in social media. "A lucky day in plein air painting is when nature, mood and skill all work well together by chance, capturing a moment in time that enables you to create everlasting magic."
