Amy Jobes

My art is inspired by natural places with huge skies and distant horizons. I capture my emotional response to these precious, mysterious and amazing places by painting them. By immersing myself in nature and the elements, I fill up my heart. Then I pour it out again onto the canvas.

Recording the extraordinary beauty and emotive qualities of a landscape is important to me. But equally, I also hope that my art inspires others to enjoy and appreciate the land and ocean in the way I do. We all live such busy lives. Everyone needs some time to get out there, breathe deep, contemplate, mess about and recharge.

I feel very lucky to live in North Devon. The gorgeous coastline and endless views of Exmoor are constant sources of inspiration. The conservation of my local beaches, moors and woodlands is also of high importance to me. I wish for my art to indirectly encourage positive environmental actions, by moving people to begin (or rekindle) their own personal love for the natural world.

Back in the studio, I am influenced by artists such as Kurt Jackson, Franz Marc and Turner. I listen to music as I paint, and often use song titles or lyrics to title my paintings. Oil paints are my preferred medium.  Oils are rich, velvety and simply gorgeous. I use palette knives to spread the paint like butter, building on the undercoat with various techniques to create vibrant and textured impressionistic paintings.
