ARTISTIlma Matthews

Ilma’s art work is always influenced by her personal connection with nature and her environment.

Ilma’s subject matter ranges from awe inspiring storm filled skies, the grandeur of the mountains and oceans to the smallest herbs and abundant flowers and trees nature has to offer. All are depicted in bold descriptive brushwork utilizing the subtle nuances of light and colour. She is drawn to painting places which hold special meaning to her, environments that capture her imagination; places she enjoys revisiting and surroundings that bring about a feeling of inner peace. She expresses those emotions and impressions in her artwork.

Depicting our world and it’s beauty for other’s to enjoy has always been her focus, it is what drives her creativity and speaks to her soul.

ilma has been exhibiting her artwork since 2008, more recently exhibiting at the Hilton Art’s Festival for her 4th consecutive year as well as Community ZA. She continues to complete commissions and has donated works to charities. Her medium is oil on canvas.
