Alanda Calmus, b.1974, was initially trained as a graphic designer and illustrator and has a background of nearly 20 years experience in traditional, realist portraiture and wildlife painting. Moving on from this style of working, Alanda now embraces a looser and more free-flowing art style. The inclusion of animals in her art continues, but the energy and spirit of them, is now of more importance than totally accurate representation. Working from a studio at her home in Fochabers, Morayshire, she continues to develop her own distinctive style using intuitive mark-making to explore the interrelatedness of all things through symbolism and expressionistic displays of colour and texture in her work. Her art practice has become an effective form of meditation that allows her to detach from everyday concerns and connect to something that brings a greater sense of peace and perspective.
I hope that my art is found to be soothing, inspiring, uplifting and thought provoking.
