Contemporary Artist Stella Dunkley B. 1966

Living near the south of England's coastline and close to the river

Stour in Dorset has given me the opportunity to gain a deeper

understanding of the land and sea of this area, many of my paintings

are directly inspired by these views, concentrating on the colour,

light and atmosphere, especially observing the intense colours

at sunrise and sunset, translating my emotional response onto

canvas, giving the viewer an insight into my unique interpretation

of the landscape, and a sense of my own personal connection

with the subject.


The subjects I find inspirational are the sea and the natural world,

I enjoy experimenting with mixed media, incorporating natural

substances into the work, the colours, textures, and patterns of

nature are evident in my paintings, the ideas for my abstract works

are inspired by visualizing and creating colour and shape from

 thought and emotion, the defined lines of modern architecture,

 the diversity of different cultures seen on travels.

I use oils, acrylics & mixed media & paint full time from my studio in Dorset, with the sea, river & New Forest nearby, which is constantly inspiring, I enjoy the challenge of capturing light & atmosphere in my work. I take photos of local scenes & also work from sketches.

My paintings are in private collections & businesses worldwide, I have completed commissions for collectors in the UK & Abroad.
