The Cycling Artist

I found this artist on Etsy one day as I persused paintings for a future purchase (hopefully!).

Artist Tina Mammoser is a full-time artist working from her studio in Greenwich, London. All of her paintings are of or inspired by the sea and are part of an ongoing project (3 years so far!) to cycle the English Coast and paint it. She goes out to a point on the coast with the bike (by train), cycles for 3 or 4 days, then comes back and does lots of sketches, studies and finally big canvases.

This painting is of the Isle of Wight. During her trip she stayed at Thornness Bay on the northwest side of the island and so each day got to see the dramatic change in visible beach and sea as the tide changed. Lisa became slightly obsessed with the strips of sand, shallow water, exposed kelp and distance bay water.

Everything about this painting makes me happy.

Please visit Tina's shop to see more amazing art:
