Hello, I'm Gill Bustamante - Artist.

Gill Bustamante is a professional artist based in East Sussex who creates large semi-abstract landscape​,​ seascape and wildlife paintings in oil on canvas. Her painting style is very distinct and often fuses art-nouveau​,​ impressionist and semi-abstract techniques with traditional portraiture that reflect her love of nature​,​ animals​,​ birds and the flora and fauna of the landscapes around her. She loves the ancient landscapes of England and her paintings often reflect the magical elements that such landscapes have. Gill’s main working method has been the development of a painting style she terms ‘memory impressionism’. This method involves going walking somewhere​,​ looking at and absorbing the things she sees and experiences​,​ and then returning home to her studio to try and capture an echo or essence of the place from memory - including any wildlife she may have seen. By this method​,​ she captures precise moments in times at different seasons and the feeling she has about them. Gill completed a fine art degree in Brighton in 1983 and has painted since she was three. In her own words: “Painting always makes me happy along with cake​,​ bunnies​,​ driving erratically​,​ BBC 6 music and totally irreverent comedy”.
