Mill Road Art: Irene Wilkes

My work begins with something seen and cherished. Landscapes, seascapes, urban and still life views are my subjects. The finished artwork evolves from these subjects to take an extraordinary glimpse of the ordinary, with the representational view stretched to abstraction. My preferred medium is a combination of acrylic paint underpainting and oil paint overpainting, finished with crayons and pencil on canvas or paper. I am a member of the Cambridge Drawing Society, and Cambridge Open Studios. My work is represented by the Artfinder online gallery.
