Gill Welland

My desire to portray colour and texture is evident in all my work, whether it is in a portrait, landscape or abstract it is just as important to me as the form. I know when I have truly finished a painting when I feel I have exhausted the emotional journey and it has come to a natural end. It is a true relationship.

 


I studied illustration at Epsom School of Art & Design in Surrey, now known as The Surrey Institute of Art and Design, and throughout my career I have worked in many creative roles from art teaching to interior design. I first started freelance Illustrative work in London in the early '90s whilst living in Camden Town, which was an exciting time for fashion, music and the arts. I have always been passionate about drawing and painting and I have sold internationally and exhibited my work in many locations over the years. I recently decided to pursue painting full time, I am excited to see where this journey takes me. I am inspired by figurative art and adore portraits and abstract work with bold strong mark-making, vivid colours and textures. It is playing with these elements in a mixed medium that has inspired my paintings more recently. I love to feel the emotion from a portrait, allowing it to tell a story through a look or expression without words, and I am often drawn to portraits and photographs of children as their thoughts and emotions are always honest, real and shown with no inhibitions.
