Meet the Artist Biography: Serena Sussex
is an award winning British artist whose oil paintings are in exhibitions and private collections worldwide. She is particularly well-known for her landscape and nature oil paintings.
As a young art student, Serena was encouraged by her innovative art teacher to use mini rollers instead of paint brushes. She still occasionally uses these old rollers.
Serena was transplanted to England as a youngster and coupled with her shy nature, she found creating art an alternative way to communicate what she felt and observed.
Her paintings aim to remind us of the sense of tranquility and air of mystery that exists all around us. Serena enjoys creating works of art that reveal the wonders of nature and the environment. This has led to many exhibitions at the Barbican Library, London City Airport, and the Laughing Dog Gallery at Brighton Marina where she is currently the resident artist.
Selected by BBC
Serena felt extremely honored when the BBC chose her to paint a picture commemorating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012. She was also asked by the BBC to be one of the contributing artists on the project – The Big Event. Serena and several other artists recreated the part of Holbein’s famous mural that featured Henry VIII.
Selected by IKEA
Her Autumn Walk landscape painting was selected by the Swedish company, IKEA to be displayed and sold for a period of time in their stores worldwide as a print onto canvas.
