Amy Jobes is a contemporary landscape painter based in North Devon. Born in Salisbury in 1982, and now living in North Devon, she has spent most of her life in close proximity to National Parks and the ocean.
The huge skies and grand expanses of the local beaches evoke feelings of connection with both our delicate and beautiful natural world, and the mysterious aspects of our higher consciousness. Emotions recalled by these experiences allow each painting to be created from the heart and woven with soul. Each image is an authentic celebration of the joy experienced when we connect with nature.
Medium: Limited to an edition run of 99, each image is printed using a 12 colour giclée fine art printing process onto a luxurious 410gsm Hahnemühle Monet cotton canvas material. The printed canvas is then carefully hand stretched over a chunky 38mm deep stretcher bar frame milled from the finest quality kiln dried knotless pine sourced from sustainable European forests. It is then finished with a stylish black wooden float frame to create a special work of art.
Back in the studio, Amy is influenced by landscape artists such as Kurt Jackson and Turner. Listening to music as she paints and often uses song titles or lyrics to title her paintings. Oil paints are Amy's preferred medium. Oils are rich, velvety, and simply gorgeous. Using palette knives to spread the paint like butter, building on undercoats with various mark making techniques to create vibrant and textured impressionistic paintings.
