Biography

Living near the south of England's coastline and close to the river Stour in Dorset has given me the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the land and sea of this area, many of my paintings are directly inspired by these views, concentrating on the colour, light and atmosphere, especially observing the intense colours at sunrise and sunset, translating my emotional response onto canvas, giving the viewer an insight into my unique interpretation of the landscape, and a sense of my own personal connection with the subject. The subjects I find inspirational are the sea and the natural world, I enjoy experimenting with mixed media, incorporating natural substances into the work, the colours, textures, and patterns of nature are evident in my paintings, the ideas for my abstract works are inspired by visualizing and creating colour and shape from thought and emotion, the defined lines of modern architecture, the diversity of different cultures seen on travels. I use oils, acrylics and mixed media and paint full time from my studio in Dorset, with the sea, river & New Forest nearby, which is constantly inspiring, I enjoy the challenge of capturing light and atmosphere in my work. I take photos of local scenes and also work from sketches. My paintings are in private collections and businesses worldwide, I have completed commissions for collectors in the UK and Abroad.

Absolutely superb. Stella took time to understand my brief, was communicative and flexible throughout and delivered a high quality end product well with my given tight timescale. Would heartily recommend Stella to anyone wishing to get a landscape piece of art completed. Thank you so much Stella.

Stella has created such a beautiful oil painting for our home, we are absolutely delighted with it. She has kept in regular contact with us sending photographs of the painting as it developed. I would highly recommend Stella for any commission work.
