Nettie Wakefield

Nettie Wakefield is a contemporary fine artist who lives and works between London and LA, exhibiting her artworks internationally. She’s an artist with a solid grounding in art history and a commitment to traditional draughtsmanship, using her art to create perceivable barriers between artist and viewer with subject matters including reverse portraits and social distancing. 

Nettie Wakefield works in a Realism style. Wakefield’s artistic process centres around her dedication to traditional art. Working predominantly using pencil on paper, she observes and focuses intently on her subject, captures its form, then isolates and suspends it within the blank page; emphasising an importance that is usually missed. 

Her work draws inspiration from human transience, the overlooked details of the mundane and the facets of everyday life that are taken for granted.
