ABOUT SUSAN ENTWISTLE
Susan Entwistle is one of the few pointillist painters practising their art. Her unique style of painting is created with layers of colourful dots to capture the vibrancy and essence of beautiful gardens, woodlands and landscapes.
Her work has sprung out of the nostalgia of a childhood that was so often centred on the garden and the natural landscape around her. ‘This love of the beauty of nature continues in the theme of my paintings. With a background in textile design this has influenced and shaped the style I paint in. Colour is all important in my work and I create the painting by building layers of coloured dots and marks using acrylic paints instead of threads to emulate a tapestry-like impression of my subject.
SUSAN ENTWISTLE – STUDIO
My studio is separate to my house and purpose built as an office and studio area for my painting.
Ahead of physically opening her studio to visitors on 18-19 June, here is a short video showing Susan at work.
SUSAN ENTWISTLE – WORK
My original paintings are created in acrylic on canvas in a contemporary, pointillist style. As well as painting to commission I also create a selection of original paintings each year.
The subject matter I am almost inevitably drawn towards is the natural environment, whether it is a landscape of woodland, a park or garden, or the trees and flowers within those landscapes. I believe my paintings reflect this love and can take a little part of nature and the garden into someone’s house along with all their own nostalgic memories.
If you are interested in this work, please contact the artist directly through the links above.
Susan’s physical open studio is on: 18-19 June 2022
Meanwhile – This video is about a commission from the Principality of Monaco to paint the gold medal award winning Monaco garden designed by Sarah Eberle and constructed by Peter Dowle Howle Hill Nurseries at the RHS Chelsea Flower show in 2011. The painting was given as a surprise gift to Prince Albert of Monaco in an awards ceremony later in the year – and the video shows the photographs of the garden, the trip to Monaco and finally the painting.
Prints of the original painting are available at susanentwistle.com.
