Featured Artist: Vandy Massey
About the Artist:
“I paint for the sheer pleasure of watching images emerge on the paper and find it thrilling when a picture demands attention.”
Vandy Massey started painting in watercolour at the end of 2009, and is largely self-taught.
She grew up in South Africa and now lives in Whittlesford, Cambridgeshire. Africa still influences her painting in discernable ways: She loves strong colours and aims to capture a sense of space or scale in her work. Recently she moved towards including textures in her watercolours to emphasis mood and create a dynamic element.
An avid traveler, Vandy draws inspiration from the places she visits, expanding her horizons regularly. Current works included pieces inspired by images and feelings of Africa, Australia, Italy, France or Japan.
Her paintings have been described in the Cambridgeshire Journal as being filled with ‘Joy, energy and colour’.
She occasionally works in other mediums, but watercolour is currently her preferred medium.
Her works are part of private collections in the United Kingdom, United States, France, New Zealand, Portugal and South Africa.
