Biography

Based in her Dovecote stuidio in Mansel Lacy, Herefordshire, Stella creates original vibrantly colourful artworks, inspired by her love and practice of music, dance and rhythm, as well as her passion for travel and the richness of the natural world.

Stella originaly trained in technical drawing, studied perspective and form and worked in a drawing office.  Then after raising a family she returned to study Fine Art, Textiles and Art History at Hereford College of Arts and continued with 20th century Art History through the Open University.


Artist Statement

My main aim is to explore the use of layered colour and richness of paint to create rhythmic images within an atmosphere of movement and light - full of vitality and mood, some exuberant, others quiet and contemplative.


Wherever I am in the world I see many colours, tones, shapes that I put into the paintings. Each work is built up of these memories, developing over months or even years into a painting that I recognise, not of a place, but which becomes itself. 

I use acrylic paints of all kinds - thick, fluid, spray, inks - on natural birch wood panels or sometimes thick paper. I like the birch wood grain which, as I begin work, I consider and which directs me each time I start a painting. Sometimes you see that grain in the finished painting which recalls the natural world which surrounds us and is a very important part of the work.

The process of creating a painting embraces not only technique but also layers of thinking, feeling and the contemplation of the work in progress.  Inspiration and spontaneity is always necessary to complete a work that satisfies me.

Each moment we live we experience life through our varied senses, I hear the numerous sounds; noting the treble, the bass, the forte, the piano and the silence.  I feel the rhythm, the pulse, the vibrations and the stillness. When I look at the countryside, an object, a figure, I see a harmony of colours, the shapes, the tones, the shadows. I absorb all these moments, culminating in a painting in an abstract form.
