gill bustamante b.a.

I am a professional artist based in Sussex and I paint large original landscapes and seascapes in oil on canvas.

My painting style is a fusion of Expressionist, Impressionist, Semi-abstract, Art Deco, a little Art Nouveau and whatever mood I am in that day. I often practice a kind of Impressionism in that I walk, look at things and then paint from memory. The result is that I paint what was impressed upon me when I looked at a landscape – thus a kind of Impressionism!

I am inspired by the patterns of nature and the energy, colours and spaces of the landscapes and animals around me. I like to think that paintings have ‘little souls’ woven into them by artist’s and that these are what call to a viewer (or not as the case may be) and give a painting presence and desirability.

All of my paintings have a story added in to them – sometimes humorous, sometimes mystical, sometimes with a message of hope or encouragement.

My aim is to make art that offers a glimpse of spaces and possibilities where people can escape the manic pace of life and imagine themselves somewhere better – even if just for a little while.

On my website, ( you can see original paintings currently for sale on by ‘original paintings shop’ page and prints for sale on my ‘fine art prints’ page. I sell my art via the well known store ETSY (SussexPaintings)

as this allows trust and buyer protection along with multiple payment options should you decide to buy a painting or print from me.

Please contact me if you would like to make an appointment to view my artwork (I am in East Sussex) as I am always very happy to meet people.

Thank you! Gill Bustamante
