How do I know Elaine Sibley?
Elaine and I are members of SHAF (South Hams Art Forum). We both take part in the annual SHAF Arts Trail. This year, that’s 13-28 October. Put those dates in your diary!
Elaine and I also exhibited together at the Contemporary Passions Exhibition in June of last year and that’s where I first saw some of her work: her beautiful hand forged silver jewellery.
In this exhibition, we meet Elaine, the painter.
Like me, Elaine is passionate about landscape. Unlike me, her style is incredibly adventurous!
What’s special about Elaine Sibley’s work?
Western Beacon from South 60 x 60
Elaine’s contemporary landscapes emerge from natural surroundings; namely Dartmoor and the local coastline.
She is aware of the ever changing weather and conditions on Dartmoor and attempts to capture the effect this has on light and colour in her paintings.
She walks, sketches and takes photographs.
Back in the studio, she is currently enjoying the immediacy of acrylics and uses texture and a variety of tools to try to convey the mood and atmosphere of the place rather than a true representation.
