Charming Countryside paintings by Carolyn Pavey

Artworx Gallery is pleased to reveal a new artist on display. Carolyn Pavey is an artist and illustrator with a charming and charismatic quality to her work. Carolyn works from her beautiful garden studio on the Isle of Wight and her work comprises contemporary paintings and illustrations. Her paintings include landscapes, still life and occasionally portraits and for these she mainly uses oil paints.

Her illustrations are both whimsical and charming and include animals, seaside and country themes. Besides giving visual pleasure she likes to make people smile or, better still, laugh out loud. She likes to use a mixture of pencil, crayons and water based media for illustrations.

Foxing the Hounds by Carolyn Pavey

Carolyn Pavey is inspired by many aspects of everyday life, the English countryside and the beaches near her home on the Isle of Wight, to literature, song lyrics and gardens.

“I always carry my sketchbook as you never know when something will strike a chord. A conversation overheard, a train journey, the wildlife in the countryside or even the seemingly mundane; all can inspire me to tuck myself in the studio and experiment with the paintbrush.

I enjoy mixing colours and if the occasion arises will grind my own paints. I like the whole chemistry of the process and I can control the finished paint to be the consistency I need.

Being a painter is wonderful as I can explore anything I wish in any way that I choose. I want the observer to identify with the finished work and to almost become part of the painting. Life is a gift to be explored. I view the world in terms of colour and line, and if my paintings sometimes make people smile with me along the way, then that is a bonus.” – Carolyn Pavey.
