Janine Baldwin’s work is the expression of a lifelong affinity with the landscape. She lives and works on the North Yorkshire coast of the UK, and she finds this environment a constant source of inspiration in terms of exploring the ever changing light, colours and forms of land and sea. Her paintings are celebratory and energetic, combining gestural marks and evocative colour. She builds a gradual layering of paint to create the paintings, and oil sticks (oil paint in solid form) are often used to integrate painting and drawing. Major influences are Abstract Expressionism, particularly Willem de Kooning, and Cornish art.
Janine has exhibited extensively across the UK, including with the Royal Academy of Arts, the Society of Women Artists and the Pastel Society, London. Her work is held in private collections across the UK, and in Germany, the Netherlands, Sardinia, Africa and Mexico.
In 2014 Janine won the Arts Club Charitable Trust Award at the Mall Galleries, London.
Many of her works are around 60 x 60cm, but pieces can range from 20 x 20cm to the largest at 160 x 130cm. Prices range from £175 to £2500.
