I practise a painting style I refer to as ‘Memory Impressionism’. I coined this phrase because my artwork is often created after visiting or walking somewhere I have affinity for. I then make a painting that captures my impression of that place along with the colours and the way I felt about it from memory. My paintings often have slightly mystical elements within them. I try to instill energy and answers in them that I like to think will help bring good fortune to their buyers. I may have the body of a middle aged woman but I have the mind and imagination of an 8 year old and am delighted that I can indulge this inclination in my painting and actually get paid for it. I am not alone in my desire to find magic in the spaces, plants, trees and creatures of nature I think. I may never be rich or famous but that was never my goal. I want the world to be beautiful and people to be happier. Art makes that happen – in all its forms.

Gill Bustamante Sussex Artist

I am an artist based in Sussex and I paint large contemporary landscapes, seascapes, animal and bird paintings in oil on canvas.
My painting style has elements of abstract, impressionist, expressionist, art-nouveau and something possibly unique to me but which I have not worked out yet.
The aim I have when painting is to create art that hints at better times and places. I dream that one day I may paint a masterpiece that is so perfect I could disappear into it.
I have a fine art degree in sculpture (acquired at Brighton in 1983) but am largely self-taught as a painter. For many year’s I painted animal portraits but finally realised I was having to repress my urge to experiment a bit too much and people did not seem to appreciate their Labrador being visually experimented with. So in 2012, I stopped painting commissions altogether and set myself free to try new techniques and painting styles and on large canvases so that I would have more room to play. I also took up walking in the country and painting from memory. This allows my impressions of a place to come out on the canvas in strange and interesting beautiful or disastrous ways.
