Antoinette Kelly Artist Bio:
I am a British artist born in Surrey, England. I am currently based in France where I have my studio. I studied graphic design and illustration and on leaving college I decided that I wanted to make paintings and exhibit them instead. My work is considered naive in style. I find inspiration in the work of artists such as Rousseau, Vallotton, Balthus, Frida Kahlo and Kit Williams. I am interested in dreams, imagination and the subconscious. I often paint animals as symbolism in my work to express my ideas, emotions or a message that I'm trying to convey. Some of my work is autobiographic, I see it as a way of understanding myself and the world around me. I try to express how I feel and hope that other people can relate to this. Sometimes I just like to paint something humorous as I find human behaviour so fascinating and often ridiculous! I always paint in acrylics as I like to work quickly. I paint on either paper or canvas. When I have an idea for a new painting I like to select the size of canvas first and then I let my ideas develop within that space.I then cut out sketches I've made of figures and move them around on the canvas until the composition works. I make changes as I go along. Mostly I just work from imagination.
