Abby Winter BA (Hons)

I am a Fine Artist based in West Sussex. I studied at Bath School of Art and graduated in 2014.

I first starting painting when I was 15 and I haven’t looked back since. I was persuaded to choose portraits for my GCSE exam topic and a despised it, after having to then study portraiture throughout my first year of A Levels I was hooked.

During university I was able to develop my skill and understanding of paint. I began painting old family photographs which then extended to a whole series of black and white portraits. I feel that by removing colour, it gives a sense of timelessness. After graduating, I began to experiment more with brush marks and colour.

Over lockdown, I started drawing and painting animals. I love trying to capture each animals personality.

I am currently working on a new series of work, combining my love of portraiture and dance/movement and I cannot wait to see where it takes me.
