NALINI SHANTHI COOK
I was a teacher, lecturer and Inspector for Art in the UK. I now live and practice my art in Andalucía, Spain.
my art is in International private collections all over the world, America, Spain, France, Africa, India, Germany, Italy, Sicily, Australia and England. I am an active member of Axarquia Art, a group of professional international artists. I have exhibitions and sell paintings in Andalucía and world wide.
The themes of the paintings vary in the following genre: landscape; figure; East, Abstract. The process and mediums I use are mixed media, hand made paper, oil, acrylic and ochre from the mines in Southern France. I love colour, so the paintings often have strong colours and texture and several layers applied to the canvas or paper. The paintings express universal themes of love, life, light, beauty and colour. There are memories and colour from my Asian heritage which create ambiguity in some of the works.
