Hello and welcome to my webpage. Which, provides a context for the current and earlier paintings, with some background information or narrative. In addition the website supports and promotes exhibited work.
Art helps me to feel content, relaxed and useful. I express myself better through my art. I want to sell my artwork to share myself and my passion. Having someone purchase my art to display in their home is the greatest compliment of all.

About Margot Stinton
Based in Herefordshire, United Kingdom. member for 3 Years
My art studies began in Herefordshire in Hereford College of Arts. Art school classes included painting, drawing, composition and art history. I believe that the fundamentals I learned there helped in the following years and influenced how I approach a painting. This schooling cultivated discipline. I plan my work, diligently - and always prepared to wipe out an area that took hours of work,because it does not fulfill the purpose. Art helps me to feel content, relaxed and useful. I express myself better through my art. I want to sell my artwork to share myself and my passion. Having someone purchase my art to display in their home is the greatest compliment of all. An artist use of colour influences how I use that colour in my work. The visible shape and texture of colour and the possible composition of the line fascinate me. As an artist, I work hard to develop paintings that speak both to me and to others about the beauty or struggle that exists. The challenge, as with any created moment from the past, is not to caricature the moment and instead capture it in all its former glory. My artwork speaks, not only for me, but for people who were long ago silenced. Part of my process before I begin painting is to read as much as I can about the specific object or person I am about to recreate on canvas. I try with every finished work to breathe life into a long forgotten culture, person or object, so that its designs, ideas, innovation and lifestyle are displayed on my canvas. I do not merely want to capture the image with my brushes, rather, with careful, colourful strokes, I want to give the portrait life once more.
