Colette Baumback

Colettes work is texture and colour in its natural landscape, an exploration of light and moods, hewn from nature and the seasons. Flora and fauna brought to life with an evocative sense of joy. Using contoured acrylics, in multiple layers of colour, her palette knife captures the stunning beauty of her floral subjects with a sense of awe and celebration. Impressionistic, organic, and sometimes with hints of abstract, these meaningful compositions never fail to inspire, transforming the viewer into a participant rather than a spectator. My earliest childhood memories are daubed with scenes of myself painting and making my pictures. It has always been a part of who I am. I am self-taught and have developed my own unique style. The process of painting and creating captivates me, allowing my emotional response to develop and fuse into the subject. I work with a palette knife, cloth and a variety of implements, exploring the structure of the subject, building up layers of paint, colour and texture.
