Oil painting / Watercolour / Illustration / Mixed Media / Body Painting and Special effects

introduction

Working in either oils or watercolours, Chloe's work depicts lone females, beautiful and enigmatic with a romantic, cinematic stillness. The beautiful realism in the faces and use of bright synthetic colours, contrast with expressive mark making, drips and texture, and although aesthetically kitsch and pretty have a dark, melancholic undertone. Chloe began painting as a traditional portrait artist with a fascination in pre-raphaelite and renaissance portraiture. Her work has since evolved to subtly reflect her love of vintage cinema, comics, tattoo artistry and the strange and macabre.

Chloe has been painting, exhibiting and taking on commissioned work since 2003, and currently works across London and the Midlands. Graduating from a Fine Art Degree in 2008, Chloe continued to sell and exhibit work but went on to study make-up and special effects, working in the makeup industry in London for 4 years. Although this had a great creative impact on her work, she left the beauty industry to focus on painting in 2012. Chloe has exhibited nationally and internationally as well as hosting her own online shop, Pudding Baby, and continues to work on a variety of creative projects.
