This beautiful olive wood panel has been hand painted in acrylics.
Jemima moved to Shropshire with her husband in 2007 and began painting pieces which could be framed and hung on the wall. She found a whole new wealth of inspiration in the rolling hills, farmland and woods that surrounded their house.
She feels compelled to paint and draw every day and her paintings are a celebration of the natural world around us. Jemima paints in acrylics on to gessoed panels or wood which is then varnished. Acrylics are a quick drying and versatile medium which suits her illustrative style.
“I was born on a farm in Devon but lived for most of my life in Sussex. I studied illustration and design at Northbrook College in Horsham. After leaving college, I spent six months in Rome as an au-pair. The frescoes and decorated furniture I saw, as well as the Italian paintings, proved to be a great inspiration which changed my life. Upon returning to England, a friend suggested I try restoring and then painting furniture which I salvaged from auctions and antique markets. I continued to do this for a few years, which I really enjoyed. I am particularly influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement, and medieval illuminated manuscripts and I think this comes through in my paintings.”
