CARRIE MCKENZIE – ARTIST HALIFAX, YORKSHIRE and BRUSHO ART

My paintings are exhibited regularly at a number of galleries and venues across West Yorkshire. My Brusho art has been selected for collections in UK, Europe, USA, Australia and New Zealand.

Working from my studio in Halifax, I have trained with some of the leading national and internationally acclaimed artists, who have influenced the development of my own personal style. Born and brought up Yorkshire, I am  fascinated at the play of light and colour that completely changes the appearance of the environment, its people and wildlife. So many great artists have tried to capture the fascination of light in their work – it is, I think, one of the most transformational aspects of any painting. I am constantly striving to reflect the impact of light and colour into my own work. Leaning towards illustrative and contemporary, rather than traditional photo-realism, I explore expressionistic loose styles, which bring out the colour, light and atmosphere or essence of my subjects. Never short of ideas for what to paint, my best inspiration is the beautiful and fascinating world around us.

MY BRUSHO ART STYLE

My artwork leans towards illustrative and contemporary, rather than traditional photo-realism. I am fascinated with the unique, exciting results of working with Brusho and the stunning effects when paint and water mingle on the paper to shape the image in fascinating ways. I can well understand why these water-based powder crystals have been described as “little pots of magic”. More recently, I have been using Brusho with mixed media, especially for more abstract/semi-abstract artwork. As well as Brusho, I paint in all water-based mediums: watercolours, oils, acrylics, pen and ink.
