About The Artist

I am an artist based in Chobham, Surrey. My artwork ranges in a variety of media, from oil painting to tempera, watercolours, acrylics and mixed media.

It is mainly figurative, though some of my pieces can be abstractions of figurative forms. I work on objects, single items or still life and landscapes.

I do not mimic reality and look for a personal vision of shapes and colours sometimes disregarding proportions. Impressionistic views merge with a surrealist vision in my work and a poetic interpretation of reality, sketching and drawing, are always my first steps towards a finished work. Then I choose the media that
best suits the composition. Sometimes I try different media for the same subject, to see which one interprets the form and thought I mean to convey.

The picture needs to speak to the viewer, communicating multiple sensations and engaging them in the story. Then I choose the media that best suits the composition.

I am also a writer and my inspiration, both in writing and in painting comes from where I live, what I do and the people I meet. It can be a view of the English landscape, flowers on a wall, working in my back garden, or an encounter. I am also very much inspired by travels, the changing of seasons, exhibitions and memories.

I think most of my work is a revisitation of memories of what I saw and experienced in the recent or distant past.

About The Artist

Hildegarde was born on the edge of the Kalahari Desert, Northern Cape Province, South Africa.

She studied Social Science at the University of the Orange Free State, but has always been passionately involved in painting. She came to the UK in the “Sixties”, is married with two children, and lives in Surrey where she teaches and paints in her Studio in Molesey.

Hildegarde is primarily a “Colourist”. Her work is much influenced by her roots and she brings warmth and vibrancy into her paintings where with gay abandon uses colour and paint in a way that has been described as, “delightfully sensual”. Whether tackling cluttered Still Lifes of everyday objects, or landscapes of Southern Africa and Europe, she delights in depicting the effects of light and dark. The “Impressionists” and “Scottish Colourists” have had a major influence on her work. Although mainly an oil painter, Hildegarde also uses watercolour and mixed media.

Of Painting as an activity, she says “No matter how demanding painting can sometimes be, it always fills me with a huge sense of satisfaction and joy. In painting I escape into a World of my own, where I can revel in creating images with colour, shape and form.”

Galleries and Exhibitions

Hildegarde has sold to clients world-wide. Her paintings are represented by Art Galleries in South Africa and London. Her work is regularly exhibited with the Chelsea Art Society, and has been represented at the Affordable Art, and Battersea Art Fairs . In September 2007 she was Guest Artist for “The Family Law in Partnership”, Bedford Chambers, Covent Garden, London, and exhibited in May 2008 hanging at the Royal British Artists Exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London. One of her works, “Daffodils” was recently auctioned at the Royal Academy on behalf of Marie Curie Cancer Research.

Painting Commissions

Hildegarde undertakes commissions for Still Lifes incorporating client’s colour schemes and precious possessions as well as painting private homes and gardens.

Art Talks & Demonstrations / Art Tutor - Including Cruise Liners

Hildegarde regularly runs painting workshops and demonstrations for a number of Art Societies and exhibits both in South Africa and England. She has sold to clients world-wide. For the last four years Hildegarde has been a watercolour instructor for major Cruise Lines.

Art Groups

Hildegarde is a member of Molesey Art Society, Chelsea Art Society, Sunbury on Thames Art Society & Thames Valley Art Society and Weybridge Art Society.
