About

jonquilsart@gmail.com

I paint in oils on canvas, linen or board. Colour is the dominant driver in all my works, creating vibrant still life and rich tonal landscapes.

Following a Diploma in Art and Design I joined the Wimbledon Art Studios and shows my work in London and Cornwall. I work daily from my studio in southwest London.

My paintings, created using oil paint, are inspired initially by colours I observe in the landscape and things around me. Although my work is mostly representational, I allow the mark-making and textures created as I layer the paint, to inform the image. My focus is the sense of place, or essence of the object rather than a strict representation of it.
