Hettie Pittman lives and Works in West Sussex. A self taught contemporary sea and landscape artist, painting full time for the last 19 years, she is extremely fortunate to sell privately as well as commercially to collectors worldwide. Artist statement..." I paint primarily from my studio Sussex marking marks with a palette knife, newspaper, rags and sometimes a brush. I always aspire to give each painting a sense of space and to convey an energy and rawness, but allowing the painting to be open to interpretation from the viewer. Each artwork is built up with layers of paint applied thickly, sometime peeled back with newspaper or scratched into with the edge of a brush or palette knife. Painting in a studio, the work can become reflective of my own personal experiences. I hope i can also convey the atmosphere and sense of place. The sea has a huge influence on what i do, its rhythm and movement always being something i try and capture. However my passion for painting is a journey that doesn't fit neatly into one genre or another. Sometimes i'm working on a series of very loose seascapes then i move into a more figurative phase. this work can be quite primitive as in my naive harbour paintings or thick impasto floral images. Each painting is a journey, an exploration of the physicality of paint and canvas, a suggestion rather than an appearance of a particular place. I am very lucky to be spending my working day doing something i love, painting has become the very essence of who I am. I hope this reflects in the work i produce and that i can share some of that passion with the spectator..."

Artwork

This piece of artwork is truly beautiful.Textured, light defying and just pulls you in. Been looking for something to fill a big space for ages - including in top end art galleries - saw this on-line and it's perfect. Thank you Heather.

Artwork

We LOVE the two canvases....I have seen so much artwork that was not quite right but the paintings suit the space and tones of the room perfectly.
