About

Artist Statement:

“I approach each painting in the spirit of the moment, building layer upon layer, finding the perfect balance between form, content, tradition and abstraction.  Being influenced by Post-Impressionist painters, my work has an emphasis on light, colour and texture. I also use my immediate surroundings as my muse.  Painting familiar subjects makes it easier to loosen up. The process becomes less about rendering and more about expressing life.”

– H.W-Dixon

  1. Just found your blog and work online Halima and adore your work for its vibrancy , freedom of spirit, clarity of colour and joyous loose rendering . I would love to paint even a fraction like that! I live in East Anglia and wondered if you hold any courses I could attend? Please let me know.

    Ps The linocuts are wonderful too – something I enjoy making also.

    1. Hello Barbara!

      I am glad you enjoy my work. I do not hold any courses, but I do offer in-home private lessons if you live in a reasonable distance from Sudbury. More info can be found by clicking the private lessons tab at the top of my blog page. In the meantime, I would be very happy to answer any questions you may have about my process, technique and materials.

      -Halima 🙂
