Artist Vivienne Luxton who likes to produce paintings of people in all walks of life, at work or at leisure, and there is often humour in her subjects. Inspiration for her paintings are both from the imagination and from first hand experience. As a the wife of a Farmer, Vivienne has had many opportunities to observe and sketch farmers and animals on the farm. She is also a keen observer of market scenes many of which feature in her country-focused paintings. Vivienne’s ink and watercolour paintings reflect her observations of country interactions, while her work paintings in acrylics demonstrates her love of colour.

“I note things in sketch-books, and take photographs. Later, in the studio, I work from the imagination, enjoying the animation of people at work and play, and interacting with their animals and children. I like to inject bit of magic into my pictures by using high-key colour and disregarding objective reality if it doesn’t suit the composition”.

Vivienne studied painting at St Martin’s School of Art, London then went on to study film and television at the Royal College of Art and was awarded an MA (1966).

After a career in the film industry it was not until she moved to Gloucestershire and started a family, that she returned to painting. Vivienne taught art at Stroud College of FE for 16 years. In 1992 she moved to Powys to combine farming and painting.  She has exhibited at the RA, the RWA, the Albany Gallery Cardiff, Denise Yapp Contemporary Art, The Fiery Beacon Gallery, Painswick, The Millfield School’s “open” where she was “highly commended”. She has also exhibited in many local venues in Herefordshire and Powys.  Her work has been bought by Stroud District Council, St Margaret’s Hospice, Westbury on Trym, Gloucester Hospital and Cheltenham Hospital, and is in many private collections in the UK and abroad.

Recently her painting of a bonfire at night was used by “The Oldie” magazine.
