Bea Roberts


I am a mixed media artist from Nottingham in the UK, creating bold, quirky artwork, which sometimes verges on the surreal. I work from imagination and intuition, creating strange people and weird animals. I also paint a lot of women and find myself making feminist statements in some of my artworks. I virtually always work in mixed media - acrylic paint, collage, watercolour paint, drawing pens, inks and using found objects. I feel you get a freshness, and extra energy when you work in different mediums together. Although I can be very prolific, I do work in 'fits and starts', when I work like a mad woman for a few months, creating lots of artworks, and then not painting at all for a few more months. I probably poop myself out with the frenetic creativity! I always come back to making more artworks though.

My art style also seems to jump around - I have never particularly followed the path of being known for just one art style, although I think I generally fit into the 'outsider art' genre. One day I may want to make some collages using found objects or vintage papers, the next I might feel the need to do some illustrating, or precise watercolours. I have more or less always been a 'self representing' artist, working outside of the retail gallery world selling straight to customers. , therefore I have just, more or less, 'done my own thing' and people seem to like it.

I have selling my artwork online, seriously, since around 2000 and my artworks hang in people's homes all over the globe. I have also had artworks bought for the sets of several TV and film productions.
