Vanessa Reynolds

 

Originally from Hampshire, I recently moved to the beautiful county of Sussex, to Southwick. I teach Fine Art at a local sixth form college. I paint in my spare time.

Here I am displaying some of my 3 most recent groups of painted subject matter. The passion of dance, African scenes from trips to the slums of Africa and the vibrant colours of my new home land. I paint in acrylics mostly. I like to layer up colours, using the paint thickly in an impasto style or as thin washes, whatever way that I can to get the result I want. I just enjoy moving paint around.

I like to print, using etching, lino and mono-prints to create mixed media collages that are painted into and stitched upon. My main subject matter personally has always been wild landscapes, wildflowers, wild places. I am a country girl at heart, and that’s what I like to replicate.

I also paint pet portraits from photographs, please take a business card. They make thoughtful, personal gifts.
