Large Original Landscapes, Seascapes, Animal and Bird Paintings and Prints by Gill Bustamante

I am a professional artist based in Sussex, England and I paint large semi-abstract original landscapes, seascapes, animal and bird inspired paintings in oil on canvas. My painting style is a fusion of abstract, traditional, expressionist, impressionist, and a little art nouveau. Most of my paintings are also available as prints on paper or canvas.

I practise a painting style I refer to as ‘Memory Impressionism’. I coined this phrase because my artwork is often created after visiting or walking somewhere I have affinity for. I then make a painting that captures my impression of that place along with the colours and the way I felt about it from memory. My paintings often have slightly mystical elements within them. I try to instill energy and answers in them that I like to think will help bring good fortune to their buyers. I may have the body of a middle aged woman but I have the mind and imagination of an 8 year old and am delighted that I can indulge this inclination in my painting and actually get paid for it. I am not alone in my desire to find magic in the spaces, plants, trees and creatures of nature I think. I may never be rich or famous but that was never my goal. I want the world to be beautiful and people to be happier. Art makes that happen – in all its forms. Please contact me if you would like to make an appointment to view artwork (East Sussex) or to discuss a commission. I am always very happy to meet people!
