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 raise my daughters I found my passion for art again, social media has opened up a whole new audience to me and I now have owners of my artworks and online courses all over the world!
I sell my work in "Logie Steading Gallery" near Forres.
