Artist Biography:

Im Juliette Westbrook- Finch, Artist & Poet and born in the 60's, child of the Universe. You can sign up for my monthly email newsletters on my website to receive Special Offers, News of New Art and any magazine articles I will be in Most of my paintings have a poem to accompany them which will be printed out on coloured card to compliment the painting and framed paintings have coloured backgrounds instead of the usual white or ivory , and in some cases where more than one colour would look good with the painting you can choose which you prefer by messaging me when you purchase. I paint using watercolors but not in the traditional way. I create texture So it looks like oil painting and /or I paint so that the paint is thicker and the colours are brighter and bolder although I sometimes paint in the traditional 'wishy washy' watercolour way! I use 300g Daler Rowney or Winsor & Newton 140lb Watercolour paper and professional quality paints (Windsor and Newton Pro -high pigment and st. Petersburg white Nights watercolor tubes which contain gum Arabic and honey, they go on smoothly and the pigments are the highest quality. I also use a medium Viscosity paint as well which has good transparency and tinting strength. My Paintings are either on 300g Watercolour Paper, Crescent Watercolour Boards or Frisk Canvas which are specially formulated for watercolour painting) If theres anything you like, I'm always open to reasonable offers :-)
