About the Artist
Antonetta has been exhibiting since 2003. She is a member of The Guild of Wiltshire Artists and exhibits regularly with them and The Aldbourne Artists.
Antonetta is a self-taught artist, building up her knowledge with evening classes or private courses, in many aspects of art over the years.
The work created by Antonetta is often impressionistic in style, but always with a foundation in drawing. She works with the essence of whatever has inspired her and chooses her medium accordingly. She insists that this spontaneous approach keeps the work fresh and fun.
Antonetta's work has been described as experimental and expressionistic, often using wild exuberant colours with great flourish. She is best known for her figurative work, but also enjoys abstracts, landscapes and flowers.
Antonetta started carving in 2007. Her work is mainly figurative in Florentine Alabaster, Limestone and more recently in Black Soapstone. Antonetta rarely starts off with any drawings often changing the line and form of the piece as the stone dictates. The sculptures flow and evolve. They are sensual, and totally unique.
