I am Renata Ayutova and I’m from Baku, Azerbaijan. Despite the fact that I study Business Management and Marketing in the UK, I have always had a keen interest in art. During the school years I created many abstract water-colored paintings and cross-stitching on various topics. It seemed impossible for me that one day I could do realistic portraits. Somewhere two years ago I did my first black & white portrait of Salvador Dali. My family and friends could see the progress in portraiture and adviced me to create an art page on Instagram. The positive feedback stimulated me to start to do not only black and white but also colored portraits.
I’m inspired by the perfection, colours and freedom of Nature and how we are affected by this. I am a self-taught artist and my greatest pleasure comes from creating paintings that make you feel good. Art can lighten up your soul and your world and can bring out the best in you and your environment. All my art is made with this feeling and this positivity is passed onto the buyer through that work.
The Fine art can lead us to different consciousness and can bring deep healing too. I love working with different mediums including oils, watercolour, pastels, pencils, tempera and acrylic. I enjoy painting landscapes, seascapes, wildlife, floral and portraits.
I was born in Porto, Portugal, 1947. Always interested in Arts but followed a different career for family reasons. Taught English during 35 years in a public school for children aged 10 to 15, but at the same time attended two art schools. This way I started painting in 1979 and had my first solo exhibition in 1986 in the town where I live. Since then I never stopped. Until today I count with more than 20 solo exhibitions and much more collective ones. This year I’m interested mainly in creating paintings having on their basis the great Freast of Senhora da Agonia in Viana do Castelo. This is intended to be for a next solo exhibition in that lovely coastal city of the North of Portugal, possibly for next August, the month when these feasts take place. Since my retirement back in 2009, I decided to pay a tribute to my country, painting its landscapes, traditions and culture. Before my retirement I used to paint foreign countries most cherished items, like the English Gardens of the Southwest which I visited in 1996, USA memories from my visit in 1991, the garden of Monet in Giverny too. Aside from this I paint whatever I like and whatever I’m asked for, like portraits or pets. Also abstracts.
All commissioned work is welcome. My newest paintings are for sale- the originals. About others I have made, only copies can be afforded, once I’ve sold many of them or offered some.
My favourite statement: Painting is to make peace with our soul.
Welcome to my artwork. Isaura Xavier de Campos
Darren Smith is a Northampton based artist who grew up in Bedford and graduated with a degree in fine art painting in 1989 at the then Polytechnic Wolverhampton.
Darren has no preferred category of painting, whether landscape, buildings or portraiture, but at this present time his work is based more around portrait painting.
The images that dominate are of iconic figures who have had a profound influence on Darren’s life from a young age growing up during the late 1970’s and early 1980’s and his works rely greatly on the photographic imagery of that era.
Darren is happy to consider any commission interest
