Mari Durnford - Ruiz
Landscapes and flowers in oil on canvas.
I was raised in Spain in the beautiful city of Madrid.
My experiences as a child was visiting the many art venues for example The Prado and other like. At the time art was not taught at the school as a practical experience however I really enjoyed looking and questioning artworks.
My interest in Art was rekindled when I found I could take art as one of my three subjects when I studied for a teaching degree at Bath. Afterwards work and family commitments took over the art.
When retirement approached my desire to paint was strong and I decide to join an art club. Since then I have been enjoying mainly painting land and seascapes on canvas. My favourite medium is oil.
I love colour and texture in nature and often relate to my travel experiences to create compositions.
