Shelagh Casebourne

Welcome, and thank you for visiting my website. This is where you can
find out more about my work and where it can be seen.

 
I'm a British artist, with a studio in Berkshire. Following a London-based
career in publishing, in 2010 I gained a Fine Art degree from The University
of Reading and a PGCE in Secondary Art and Design.

I work mainly in oils, plein-air whenever possible, as 
nothing beats the
experience of painting outdoors. I walk every day with my dogs, and
always have my pocket sketchbook and phone camera with me for when
inspiration strikes.

Last year I was a finalist in Sky Landscape Artist of the Year which resulted
in a step-change in how I approach my practice and introduced me to a
whole new audience.

I treasure this quote about my painting in the final of Landscape Artist,
from Tai-Shan Schierenburg:

"If I came across this in the Gare d'Orsay in Paris, I'd think - what a
nice early Monet, or Sisley...." 


Thank you Tai!

I hesitate to say that my work is inspired by any one thing, because I love
the fact that anything can capture your imagination if you are open to it.
The artistic journey is a constantly evolving one, and is full of
experimentation and exploration. Hopefully my paintings track this path
and I hope that others will enjoy the record.


Running occasional workshops gives me the chance to share my love of the creative process with others.
