Margot Noyes

‘my work is always strongly influenced by the people and places around me.  I am fascinated by the human form, therefore, my paintings often include figures and I paint portraits to commission.  I am very influenced by the countryside near my home, which is a source of calm for me in a frantic world.  I try to convey this sense of tranquillity in my painting.  Areas of water are a recurring fascination:  their surfaces and depth, reflections and effects of light and shade’.
