Are you drawn to artworks that give you a sense of tranquility and peacefulness?
I create works of art which are a fusion of painting and printmaking. The paintings consist of layers of elements which are mystifying and unique for the viewer.
The colours I am drawn to are often a limited palette of blues, yellow ochre and aqua greens which evoke a feeling of peace.
Botanical shapes and patterns found in nature excite me which in turn allows me to create my own honest, authentic art.
I love to mix my mediums and intrigue the viewer with some of the combinations I use such as hand printed elements combined with the ancient technique of encaustic wax, using gold to embellish elements.
This wonderful testimonial from Agneta sums up what I try to achieve in my paintings...
"I'm puzzled as to why this moves me so, it just makes me calm and happy, thankful even."
I graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone college of art with a BA Hons degree in textile design and printmaking in 1998
After a significant break to have my family I found my passion for art again, social media has opened up a whole new audience to me and I now have collectors of my art all over the world.
I sell my work in "The Riverside Gallery", in Inverness and "Logie Steading Gallery" near Forres.
You can purchase original art and prints here and through direct messages on my facebook and Instagram accounts.
