Artist Picks: Meredith Howse

Meredith's own inspiration taken from the beauty of a worldwide landscape is married to the desire to convey drama within her paintings. Her choice of other artists' work equally focuses on this ability to create mood, depth and at times a manipulation of reality. James Needham's aptitude of capturing scenes from everyday life with lashings of warm overtones contrasts with the pastel colours honoured in Minhan Cho’s little oil paintings en plein air, or the dark, rather ominous rainy cityscapes Mike Barr crafts so artistically. . Through her selection of artworks, Meredith equally celebrates artists that explore surreal themes, dominant colour palettes and modern takes on the oldest art traditions in the world. Discover the work that moves an artist through this curation packed with bestselling, emerging and well-renowned names.

"Inspired by the beauty of landscape worldwide, I try to give the landscape paintings a dramatic feel, drawing the viewer into the painting. I want you to feel you are within the painting and feel the cool depths, the power charge of a incoming storm, the warmth of the sun, or the salt in the ocean air"
