Jantien Powell

Jantien grew up on a small hill farm in South Wales. She has always loved

to draw and paint and felt that living on an isolated farm really helped her

to develop those skills while she was young. She loves to paint life as she

sees it around her, the beautiful Welsh countryside, the hill farms and

their inhabitants. She now lives and paints in the beautiful countryside

near Abergavenny, South Wales.

She paints a wide range of subjects including landscape, seascape,

animals, people and still life and although she works predominantly in

acrylics, she also uses a range of medium including oils, inks and collage.

Colour and pattern are prominent themes within her work. She loves to

pick out the most unexpected colours in a scene and to experiment with

the way that they can alter the dynamic of an image.

She is drawn to patterns whether it is the jigsaw of shapes in an old stone wall or the repeating pattern of the sheep in

the pens at the market.

She draws inspiration from life around her and loves the welsh hills, the coast, the faces and places of the scenery

around her aiming to capture the feeling and the atmosphere of the subjects around her.

She has painted all her life but turned professional in 2000 when she started teaching others how to paint.
