Jilly Watson paints happy colourful acrylic paintings.
Artist statement: “You will very often see paths or trails in my work which are symbolic of the choices we make in life. My present path as an artist has brought me great joy. I have a passion for bright colours and like to create happy sunny paintings. I have been strongly influenced by Emily Carr and Van Gogh who have inspired me to portray the movement and energy that surrounds us. For me forests are magical places but they are not static – they vibrate with energy and movement. I try to portray that movement in my trees.”
