Art by Gabriella Buckingham

intuitive and observed expressive painting


Hello, thank you for visiting.

I love colour. Both bright and subtle.

I’m primarily interested in how light affects colour and the unexpected shades and shapes that I see - it’s fascinating how it can hide and reveal forms when working on a still life painting, but I love to explore this through intuitive abstract work too, in a less tethered way.

Fall in love with one of my paintings and hang it where you can see it daily.

I hope you’ll see a colour that uplifts you - perhaps a glimpse of a place in which you were happy, or a spark of the future you dream of; ultimately a piece of art that helps remind you of how you want to feel.

About me:

I graduated from art college as an illustrator with a degree in graphic design in the early 1990s and have worked as a professional illustrator since then, my work ranging from romantic fiction in a watercolour style to brightly coloured greeting card ranges and children’s books .

I’ve contributed to several group exhibitions, had one solo show and take part in Open Studios here in North Norfolk in the Spring and recently showed at The Holt Festival Art Prize where my painting sold at the private view. Much of my past painting work is in private collections in the UK and Europe.

I live with my husband and two teenage children near Norwich in the UK.
