Featured Artist: Paula Oakley
Notes from the Artist:
I am a contemporary realist painter working with acrylics on canvas. My main area of study is to take traditional subjects and depict them in a modern style, a wonderful mix of nostalgia and modern day culture.
Based in East Sussex, UK, my constant inspiration comes from the colours and textures of my environment resulting in the creation of a diverse variety of subjects including still life and landscapes . Every painting is taken on as a challenge, eagerly embracing the desire to create it with vivid colour and liveliness.
I love the depth and vibrancy of acrylics and work with very small brushes that allow me to retain a smooth surface on which I can indulge in the fine detail that shows my artwork to be a little bit sharper, a little bit cleaner and a little bit brighter than real life.
