Artwork for Jeanette Kinsey

With the sun on the back

Light shining through

Emerging path


Morning has broken

At the edge of the orchard

Morning after rain

Rise towards heaven


How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

Born in Sweden I draws inspiration from the Scandinavian nature as well as the beautiful Marches border country and beyond. My artwork reflects a positive outlook on life and I want my paintings to convey light, hope, freedom and expectation, in the midst of life. The light is central in most of my artwork. I work in a variety of mediums. The main mediums are acrylic and oil, using both brush and palette knife, but I have also developed a passion for charcoal drawing and am exploring the expressiveness of the light and dark that can be achieved in monochrome.
Together with the looser painting style I am also able to draw detailed pet portraits, taking commissions.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Art is a form of expression. Some people can express themselves through words or song. I do it best through painting. It gives me huge satisfaction to squeeze tubes of paint and see the colours that can be achieved when mixing them. When I put the paint on the canvas my heart skip a beat. Signing the finished work makes me feel a sense of pride but also of responsibility that the finished work fairly represents what I set out to convey. Creativity is very important to me and if I can visually communicate hope and light to my audience I have succeeded.
