Belgravia in Bloom – New Beginnings – Annabel Thornton


New Beginnings
50 x 50 cm
Acrylic on Canvas

“My painting ‘New Beginnings’ is off to bees on a abstract background, which represents the tones of nature. Bees are believed to represent afterlife and rebirth. They’re a reminder that even the smallest creatures can have a big impact.” – Annabel Thornton

Artist bio

Born in Cheshire, Annabel studied at Cheltenham College of Art where she gained her BA Fine Art Honours Degree. Using dance and music as her primary focus, Annabel is concerned with the movement of the human form and transferring the graceful harmony and kinetics of the dancer onto her canvas.

She has an incredible understanding of her medium and employs many techniques, both traditional and contemporary, to reinforce the energy and strength of her subjects. Her bold and often daring use of colour serves to set the tone and atmosphere of the piece whilst drawing attention to specific details and inviting the viewer to engage with the artwork on a more experimental level.
