About The Artist

Francesca Apicella is a self-taught artist living in West Sussex, UK.

Inspired by strong feminine attributes, she creates classic portraiture with symbolic, geometric and natural elements.

Her work tends towards mixed-media paintings, composed of both oil and acrylic, among others.

Ultra-smooth wooden and metal panels are the chosen "canvas" for these art pieces, adding to the mystical, humanesque-like quality of the finished portrait. With the final piece uninterrupted by brush strokes and texture, this allows the artist to add minute details and a surreal-like finish that would have otherwise been unachievable.

Francesca has a background in 3D animation and studied Software Development for Animation, Games and Effects at the NCCA at Bournemouth University. This technical background has inspired some of the more mathematical and algorithmic elements of her work, whilst simultaneously incorporating classic portraiture techniques.

Francesca's Art Journey

Francesca was inspired to practice art after a long battle with chronic illness.

She was left completely bed-bound for 5 years and had to rely on others for everything. After various treatments failed, she turned to alternative therapies. One alternative medical practitioner advised her to return to one of her earliest passions, art.

What started as an uphill battle due to such severe allergies that required Francesca to paint wearing both a mask and gloves, turned into a beautiful escape into a world that was completely her own. Her first piece "Philautia", from the Greek meaning self-love, started off this adventure. The idea that physically creating something beautiful would help her appreciate being trapped in a body that didn't work properly. It was this piece that cemented the revelation that Francesca wanted to practice art professionally.

Each piece is a mirror of her journey, from "Serpentina", inspired from the ideas about progression and change, to "Aeonia, inspired by the ageless themes of infinite time and total freedom.

About The Artist

I am Sussex born and bred, and based near Eastbourne. I create art as a hobby in my spare time. I have always enjoyed art and design since school, mainly centred on woodwork and product design. I have inherited my love of design from family members, particularly one who designed jet engines for Rolls Royce.

My artwork is created mainly with oil pastels and graphite pencils, which I have practiced with a lot during the last year, but recently I have started working with acrylic paint. My style centres around crisp contrasts and idyllic scenery. Commissions are welcome.

About The Artist

Living in Eastbourne, I am surrounded by wonderful scenery. On one side I have the beautiful, rolling South Downs; on the other I have the the ever-changing rhythms of the sea. However, my favourite is the windswept wilderness that is the Pevensey Marsh!

I am very much a multi-media painter - working from a base of watercolour and building up layers of inks, pastels, charcoal, wax crayons etc. - in fact, anything that gives me the right tones and textures of Nature. I am definitely NOT a purist! There is much scraping and scratching involved in my process (and a little brushwork) with the final painting often held together with strips of sellotape - that's why I rarely sell originals!

I am unusually prolific and capture my daily dog walks and cycle rides. So, if you are after a particular scene in the East Sussex area, there's a good chance I have painted it at some time. Please ask.
