ESTE MACLEOD

Feast you eyes on the sumptuous colours and whimsical forms in this new collection of Este’s paintings. Through her work Este reflects on the sentiments, joys and nostalgia surrounding the ongoing process of life. As a fine artist she works primarily as a colourist painter applying her unique sense of colour and design which is strongly influenced by training as a textile designer.

An interest in the natural world, especially botanical, animal and bird forms, the colours of the seasons, folk art, myths and legends as well as a love for travel influence her work.

Este uses a variety of paint techniques and layering of art mediums and acrylic paint to distort and simplify recognisable objects. Attention to detail, brush strokes resembling embroidery stitches and painted textures are intrinsic to her way of working and her inimitable style.
