I am a self-taught, observational artist, working primarily in oil paint. I live and paint in London, but spend a lot of time in my native Wiltshire and in Lebanon.

 

I am inspired by light and colour, and paint with a sense of honesty and realism. My choice of subject matter ranges from landscapes and urban scenes to quiet, domestic still-lifes, a selection of which can be seen below.

Pieces available for purchase are listed on the website and I undertake a number of commissions each year.

 

My day-to-day practice can be followed on Instagram: @eleanor.as.art

Strada Easel Challenge 2023

This January, I signed up to the rather ambitious challenge, run bi-annually by Strada Easel, to paint from life each day.

It was a brilliant way to jump-start the year and, although there were one or two days where I had to drag myself to the easel, the motivation to keep painting was there. I was amazed at the change a month could make to both my painting and my practice. 

 

My kitchen rapidly filled with canvases and my Instagram filled with some wonderful new friends and co-challengees.

Some of the paintings are now available for sale through this website:

British Contemporary Art Awards 2023

In January 2023 I was extremely honoured to be a finalist in the British Contemporary Art Awards 2023 with my painting Frosty Gateway, Wiltshire:

I painted this view on a trip to my childhood home in Wiltshire in some of the beautiful frosts we had before Christmas.

 

The early morning light on the heavy frost looked almost snow-like, both on the ground and on the Wiltshire Downs in the distance.

Despite the cheesy publicity picture (above) and the extreme dedication of my friends, relatives and Instagram followers, I was up against some very talented competition and didn't win the public vote, but it was an honour to be chosen and a lot of fun competing for votes!

Recent Exhibitions:

I was delighted to have two pieces exhibited in Green & Stone's inaugural Works on Paper exhibition in January and February this year.

Both pieces, featuring autumnal flower arrangements, sold within days of the exhibition opening.

Art for Youth
Mall Galleries, London

November 2022

I was very pleased to support the excellent work of UK Youth by including five paintings in their annual Art for Youth exhibition, held at the Mall Galleries in London.

It is the second year that I have had works chosen for exhibition and I was delighted to sell work and contribute to their tireless work with young people.

In 2022 I was chosen as a finalist in the Holly Bush Emerging Artist Prize for my painting A Board of Keys.
