MIRREN HINCHLEY "Splish, Splash"


Acrylic with gloss gel on canvas,




Mirren Hinchley is an emerging, abstract painter who after a successful career took up painting in this exciting new chapter of her life. Her painting process is based on experiential learning. She has been able to let herself go & express her creativity every time she starts a new canvas. She wants her paintings to reveal her joy of colour & texture, to entice & inspire the viewer to think & talk about what they have just seen. Her works have been displayed in juried Canadian gallery shows but also galleries in Milan, the UK & Venice.

In my painting process I have learned to overcome adversity & embrace risk & vulnerability. Physically & emotionally, I feel empowered, liberated from self-imposed constraints. This transformation in myself has provoked new techniques & colour palettes. My paintings have a new look & feel. There has been an organic evolution in my style. My colours have become more dynamic, my marks bolder, twisting, curving, spiralling & slashing in all directions across the canvas using credit cards, brushes & sponges. I have found a way to express my inner emotions. Creative energy has been released that has been pent up in me I have let myself go & let it flow out of me onto the canvas. I have discovered my true self. Painting has become the anchor in my ever-evolving life.
