J Crowley

J Crowley studied art at Gaia School of Art, Design and Restoration in Valencia, Spain. Based in Brighton and London, but with family, friends and partner living in other parts of the world, she finds ‘home’ in a variety of places and her work reflects attachments, as well as reflecting her own history and the histories of people she is interested in.
J Crowley paints on wood panel, layering acrylic paint of different opacities, sanding back and repainting to create depth, movement and texture. Her subjects range from urban landscapes and seascapes to people, cars and doorways to other places. She uses a limited palette and her semi abstract paintings try to capture a moment in time. Her portraits are of real and imaginary people, tend to have a photographic, sometimes nostalgic feel, employing unusual angles to create striking compositions.
