Biography

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 Art and continued with 20th century Art History through the Open University.   Since then she has worked in 3D, relief and 2D work.  There has been a long personal  transition between depicting representational elements of landscape and the human figure, to one of employing pure abstraction where movement of suspended colour is of prime importance.


Artist Statement

My paintings are a journey of discovery from the very first mark until the final brushstroke.  As the idea forms the painting develops and evolves over many months, incorporating the vibration and resonance of 'sound' and colour.

Both the large and small paintings are based on board using acrylic paint.

 

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, which are full of vitality and mood, some exuberant, others quiet and contemplative.  The intense focus on colour, incorporating musical pitch, instrumentation and rhythmic subtlety leads to paintings of a rich 'sound' that resonate and continues to vibrate.

 

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 senses; when I look at the countryside, an object, a figure, I see a harmony of colours, the shapes, the tones, the shadows.  I hear the numerous sounds - note the treble, the bass, the forte, the piano and the silence.  I feel the rhythm, the pulse, the vibrations and the stillness.  In my painting I absorb all these moments, accumulating in a painting in an abstract form.

 

My paintings are visions without objects requiring a response entirely dependent on the language of colour, rhythm and form.'
