Here's a lists of artists and their stories for Artweeks 2019
I have farmed all my life in the Oxfordshire area and am fortunate to have traditional water meadows, which are my main inspiration and love. Also seascapes from Cornish holidays make up part of my portfolio. Wild skies and love of nature are at the heart of all my pictures.
Celine Beaugrand - Arty Kiddy
I launched Arty Kiddy in autumn 2018; I am French and moved to Oxfordshire in the early '90s. My love for art comes from an early age through the creativity of my talented mum. I am self-taught and get my inspiration from my two adventurous daughters. My aim is to make people, and particularly children, feel part of my artwork so they can create their own stories. I work in a variety of mediums (acrylic, oil, collage) and love to develop themes where children find themselves in magical situations. My style: bold colours and touches of surrealism, a sense of humour and discovery.
I have lived in Bicester since 1987. I took art at CSE level at school back in the mid 70’s but did not continue once I started work as an accountant. Now that I am retired with time on my hands I have tried different hobbies, but found my passion in art to be the most rewarding. I have not as yet taken commissions or sold my work but have gifted some to my special people. I have worked in oils, Acrylic, pastels and latterly watercolour. My favourite artist is JMW Turner, I love particularly his paintings of Venice, his impressionistic style was ground breaking in his time.
