Painting Personal Projects is taught by Dan Coombs. Its aim is to give students an opportunity to develop their own work whilst receiving guidance and mentoring in a supportive community of artists and is intended to increase confidence, creativity and a sense of direction; helping to provide strategies for establishing and growing a body of work. This year Sikelela Owen will be joining Dan in teaching this course.

I paint full time in my studio in London after having studied first at Heatherleys completing a portraiture diploma and now enjoy ongoing coaching and mentoring with the ESOP.
I paint the figure and human representation applied with colour and shape.
People and what separate us from other beings but also unite
Colours as emotion, abstract settings as a platform to the lead
Draws people in, provides the space for inclusion and reflection, challenges perceptions of what we could be or could do
Shows the spiritual as well as the physical, portrays the psyche and uses the space to the full effect with the liberty of story telling
I paint for everyone and myself and would wish my work to resonate and cause some reaction to all in so far as possible. I am influenced by those that broke convention and persevered with their own style.
I paint not just what people look like but what they feel like and how they might dream. I start with a structure, an armature to get down swiftly and build on - too carefully planned precludes the excitement and difficulty that art should be and becomes a chore of simply copying down an idea. Mix the paint and tell your story boldly. Only then is you work your own, alive and unique and trust your audience to understand what you say and make of it their own.
Themes in my work are people as artists, as children enduring their first memories, in school, in war, in life, all capturing how our unconscious might look like.

I am a self-taught artist from North London, I create oil paintings of cityscapes and street scenes using a vibrant palette. Having always lived in the city, I’m drawn towards architecture and the subject of my work is often street scenes and the urban landscape. I am fascinated by gazing out over a vast skyline, it makes me curious and thoughtful and I find it a joy to paint.

My inspiration draws upon my personal experience and I use my art to deliver the escapism I find in visiting new places and learning about new cultures. I spent a few years living in Las Vegas which has influenced my work. I enjoyed travelling the west coast of America and beaches, sunsets and palm trees also feature in my paintings often. Ideas are usually taken from places I am drawn towards; I feel inspired and want to re-create the atmosphere with paint.

Painting is exciting experience for me and often my way of relaxing. I love that the process of creating enables me to be carried away and switches my mind off from everything else. I enjoy experimenting with colour and find it interesting how different colours effect human emotions.

I now have a studio in North London and often paint the streets of London and the London skyline. I’ve tried to create happy uplifting works to take people on a journey to some of the places I visited in London and beyond.
