Posted by Eyes of Lady Wimbledon | 11 March 2021 | Arts & Culture
In light of International Women’s Day – Ad Lib Gallery is celebrating women in art by featuring some top female artists alongside their works available in their Wimbledon Gallery…
Ad Lib gallery exhibits and sells contemporary original art and limited edition prints at its gallery in Wimbledon and on its website: www.adlib.online.


1. Carolina Piteira
Carolina Piteira uses traditional techniques (while at the same time developing her own instinctive and contemporary approach) and, by her own admission, creates emotionally heavy pieces that are intense in atmosphere and shaped by her own life experiences.

2. Iryna Yermolova
I mix colours and I am pleased with them. Faces, ideas, untold phrases, undispatched letters, dreams, my happiness, grief, tenderness, loneliness, hope, belief and love – they are all on my canvases. Confused in doubts, I float in travel, I try to find answers, I draw and… I breathe!


3. Martha Fein
Martha’s passion and attention to detail required for her film and television work translates into her paintings. Her favourite medium is oil on canvas, combined with gold leaf.

4. Emma Leone-Palmer
After graduating with a fine art degree in 2005, Emma moved to Umbria in Italy, where her love of figurative painting blossomed at a studio once used by the High Renaissance painter Raphael.

Louise‘s creations feature nature and animals, where the animals are God-like, sublime and ethereal in their presence and depiction. McNaught’s work is motivated by emotive and spiritual experiences which has manifested in a mixed-media approach. Her soft style suggests a delicate relationship between nature and ourselves, making a clear point about man’s destruction of nature – which flutters jewel-like in the balance.


Don’t Give a Monkey’s
Natasha uses different shades of newspaper print create chiaroscuro – a visual effect dating back to the Renaissance, characterised by strong contrasts between light and dark – as a way of adding a 3 dimensional aspect to her subjects. This is used to punctuate the different parts of a human body, a face or an animal. In her nudes, the torn edges add a dreaminess to the uncompromising poses she depicts. On another level, extracts of specifically selected sections of print – a picture, a headline, some text – leap out from the image, adding depth and relevance to the story each individual picture tells.


Fluro Blue Nude
Louisa’s work heavily relies on inspiration from urban art. A related term is “sgraffito“, which involves scratching through one layer of pigment to reveal another beneath it. This is exactly the process used when working on oxidised steel – constantly grinding away the surface to the past scribes of paint and collage from the previous point, giving the work further depth each and every time.



Roberts describes herself as ‘a visual artist’ painting either entirely abstract or loosely figurative pieces with an autobiographical theme. She works from memory with an emphasis on colour and bold mark-making and has an interest in pattern.


Mango, Plum, Orange

9. Tamsin Pearson
“My paintings represent what I observe and experience, most often the human figure within a landscape, cityscape or beachscape. My paintings mainly stem from photographs I have taken abroad or from journey through parts of London. I create colourful work use oil paint and gesso (white pigment) on board.”

Yellow Flowers, 2020
Alanna’s work is inspired by nature, particularly exotic places like deserts where the colours are richer and highly saturated. She is drawn to vast desolate expanses, voids, devoid of human activity. It is the comforting and calming nature of these places that she wishes to translate to the viewer.


Campo De Fiori
