Gillian Durno

Welcome to a selection of Gillian’s recent paintings and limited edition prints.

Gillian graduated in 1994 from Hull University with a BA Hons degree in Teaching and Art. Gillian is a local mixed media artist and celebrates her interest in colour, texture and form in this exhibition.

A couple of recent visits to St Ives just before the pandemic, and last Summer have inspired some new work from Gillian. Her new Winter scenes are now available as prints, cards and originals and capture in particular the local area of Rutland, where Gillian enjoys walking with her cocker spaniel Florence. Inspired by the continual cycle of nature and the changing landscape, Gillian likes to capture ideas in her sketch book before refining paintings on canvas and wood panels.

A passion for flowers and landscape sing in her paintings. 

Gillian has spent time during lockdown, painting and experimenting with new media, such as waterbased oil paint, copper leaf, collage and texture. Still life painting is also a genre of work Gillian is particularly interested in. Depicting everyday objects into a composition, suspended in their own space, is something Gillian has always found naturally simple and inspiring. Innocently picking a small posy of flowers from her garden, popping them in a jug and capturing that as a painting gives Gillian a great sense of achievement.

Gillian paints from her studio set in her beautiful walled cottage garden in Ketton, and also her studio set in the grounds at North Luffenham Hall, Rutland.

Gillian is inspired by the continual cycle of nature, and the changing landscape through the seasons. Texture has become an exciting feature of her work, building up layers of collage and mixed media with a palette knife, before painting with acrylic, and more recently oil. 

Gillian has original paintings hanging in private homes in New York, Paris, Spain, London and throughout the UK. 

Gillian also exhibits her original paintings at Duncan R Miller Fine Arts of Bury Street, St James’s, London, Cambridge Contemporary Art, Trinity Street, Cambridge and Gallery 6, Stodman Street, Newark.   

Gillian regularly completes commissions for clients and is happy to offer appointments at her studio.
