Eileen Coxon

The Notice

Eileen Coxon was born and grew up in the countryside of Hampshire in an area renowned for its natural beauty. This instilled a life-long love of the natural world which still forms the basis for her work. Daily walks in the lanes and footpaths near her home in Brampton provide her material. Leaves, twigs , stones, photos and sketches etc are sometimes gathered but mostly it is the experience which counts, and memory plays a large part in the final paintings together with studio practice.

Eileen loves the softness and intimacy of the Suffolk landscape and hope to capture something of this in her work. Most of her paintings are oils and, although landscape-based, they often contain an element of abstraction. They are rarely a literal ‘view’ or even a single place as, above all else, she is making a painting.

Enjoying close scrutiny of botanical detail, she sometimes make watercolour studies of these. Some take the form of the Leporello (concertina book). The unfolding nature of the book seems to mirror the pace and rhythm of walking beside the hedgerow that informs them.
