“Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter.” Oscar Wilde
This wonderfully simple quote from Oscar Wilde exemplifies what Josette Fenech, the artist is all about. A modest, upcoming Maltese artist , Josette' s favourite mediums are oils and acrylics and she draws her inspiration from myriad sources including art of all kinds and genres. Josette loves nothing more than exploring galleries and art exhibitions at home and abroad and takes every opportunity she can to learn from her experiences. Josette has her own definitive style though she really admires the paintings of Van Gogh and Monet.
As a local artist she has many inspirational scenes to draw upon and admits she loves painting sunsets, flowers and seascapes. Josette will sit in beautiful natural surroundings and sketch ideas before transforming them into the vibrant colourful pieces contained within this site. Her use of vivid and vibrant colours is, as Wilde suggests, a true reflection of the warm and welcoming, yet incredibly humble person that she is.
Josette says: “As an artist I have a special love for colours. I love to master the colours in abstract form in order to communicate in different ways.”
And within her artwork these wonderful colours await.
