UK Based Artist Celia Bennett combines her passion for travelling with her love for creating vibrant and textured works of art. Using dynamic brush-strokes and colour to evoke movement and life, Celia’s style is free and slightly quirky, bringing out the character of the subject and reflecting her own personality in each painting.
“I love to use the paint and mixed media in a very loose and exciting style and I really enjoy the way this seems to almost give the paint a real life of it own. I adore colour and texture and creating the effect of movement and light”.
Having studied portraiture, watercolour and pastel techniques over several years, Celia found that her preferred medium was acrylic, as she could create the textures and vibrant colours that have become her signature. Her work has sold widely in Galleries and exhibitions, mainly to private collectors.
Celia says that she can still remember the excitement of selling her very first painting at a very young age and she has never lost that sense of delight and the thrill an artist feels when someone really enjoys their work. “It is absolutely magical when a collector falls in love with a painting and totally connects with what you’ve produced, that and the actual act of creating the work, is what it is all about for me”.
In 2007 Celia was delighted to be approached by Winsor & Newton Artists materials to feature in promotional literature and on their website as one of their Acrylic Artists. She spent many hours testing new products and attending sessions at their head office to give feedback and work with other artists using their paints and mediums.
