GERALDINE BOLEY ARTIST
Living in Somerset, surrounded by the natural beauty of the landscape I am never short of inspiration, and never without a camera when walking my Jack Russell Terrier on the river bank or donning wellies for a trek around the Somerset levels.
Normally drawing and painting from sketches and photographs, recent paintings have been created sometimes with no pre-drawing, and often with an illustrative, story book quality and slightly abstracted style, the essence of the subject demanding to be captured, rather than the more, realistic, representational style of the pet portraiture that I also paint.
“I am constantly challenged by the need to experiment with media and style, and the two sides of my practice are the perfect complement to each other, the one having the discipline of working to set specifications and the other the freedom to learn and grow using my own concepts.”
