Hi, I’m Ginny McDermott. I’m a Cheshire artist painting atmospheric and emotive landscapes and figures in oil. I often use bold colours, applying the paint by brush, finger and palette knife to generate a textured surface. My main inspiration comes from the beautiful Peak District, though I also spend time with family in France. In my work, I aim to shed light and love on a particular aspect of a scene - an old man walking, a lonely shed, the effect of sunlight on a street or how breath-taking the view is.
People should experience the thrill of owning original art because it breathes life into empty spaces - adds soul, beauty, texture, interest, emotion. It stamps your walls, your home, with your personality. Each piece is your discovery, you are the curator of your own exhibition. I love this idea and look to create covetable pieces that waken a desire to own them.
As an artist I create work which will inspire, enthuse, delight or just remind you of people, places and times past - it’s a great adventure! Commissions welcome.
