Hayley Buchanan In The Spotlight

August 2019

In the Spotlight Gallery this month is Hayley Buchanan with her colourful, vibrant paintings.

"I spent my childhood in rural South Wales and after studying art and design at Loughborough University I went on to have a fulfilling career teaching design and silversmithing. I now live back in South Wales and work as a professional artist.

Influenced by impressionism, I try to bring such elements as Seurat's pointillism and van Gogh's dynamic skies into my paintings. The beauty that is right on my doorstep inspires me and I try to fill my paintings with vitality, and of course, the colour I see. I have a passion for colour and portray my natural environment as a slightly surreal, vibrantly coloured, atmospheric world.

Pointillism has always fascinated me. The way tiny marks of colour can be positioned in a painting to represent, sometimes very realistically, objects and scenes. I often use this technique to create the illusion of movement or to represent the subtle variations of tone seen in natural light. In many of my pictures I also, consciously, echo the pixilation of our digital world combining ideas from two different, yet strangely convergent themes. An area I intend to explore further in my future works."

Featured Artist Paul Stokle


Robert Paul Stokle is one of the gallery's founder members. Paul has been a self-employed artist since 1987 and he produces colourful, vibrant, glowing, abstract expressions.
