About the Book
'Life Is...' presents a collection of artwork, covering a two year period from 2008 to 2010.
I enjoy working in a range of media including acrylics, pastels and watercolours. I also like to experiment in different styles, taking inspiration from various artists. However, my style tends to be more graphic, as exemplified in the painting, ‘A Distraction of Cherries’.
The book also includes stages of the artwork from sketch to final piece.
I was born in London, England on the 13th of March 1994. I lived in the UK until moving to Cyprus with my parents in September 2002. I studied at The International School of Paphos. In 2010 I completed my IGCSE examinations, gaining an A* in Art and Design. I was thrilled to receive the highest mark in the world, for A Level Art & Design, from Cambridge International Examinations. I have just completed a Foundation Course in art and Design at The Arts University Bournemouth, where I gained a distinction, and the Principal's award for Best in Show at the 2013 Summer Exhibition. I start my BA course in Illustration in September 2013. Please contact me through my website at abbyskinner.com for commissions.
