About Hilary

Based in Ellon, Aberdeenshire, Hilary Gauci says: "I am a self taught artist who started painting ten years ago. I have tried many different mediums but from the first time I used alkyd oils I was hooked. Their brilliance, depth of colour and speed of drying suited my type of work perfectly and so we continue in happy partnership.I paint on superfine Belgian linen on gessoed board and the painting is finished with two or three coats of varnish.I live in the wilds of Aberdeenshire and am surrounded by peace and space which creates a wonderful counterbalance against the intense concentration required for the sort of paintings I produce.Still life holds a fascination for me.I love the reflections in silver, pewter and copper and the colour and shape of fruit with just a little bit of foliage"
