Gill Bustamante Art
Gill Bustamante is definitely a dreamer as her ambition is to paint a way out of this universe into a better one! Most of her artworks feature pathways, portals and little mystery roots to other realities.
Her painting style is a fusion of expressionism, impressionism, semi-abstract and art nouveau. All depictions of fairytale landscapes, dreamy animals, mystery birds, horses and deer. Her techniques and ideas stand out to such an extent, they make a statement for themselves.This artist is worth following if you just have the urge to escape out this world and dive into some wonderful places.

About Gill Bustamante
My name is Gill Bustamante, and I have obtained a Fine Arts degree in Brighton in 1983. I paint large, contemporary landscape and seascape paintings in oil on canvas. They are mostly inspired by the Sussex landscapes I see around me where I live. This is where I go walking somewhere rural, look at and absorb the things I see and experience, and then come home and try to capture an 'echo' of the place from memory, including any wildlife I may have seen.
My painting style is a fusion of Expressionist, Impressionist, Semi-abstract, Art Nouveau, and something I term "Memory Impressionism."I have painted since I was three. It always makes me happy along with cake, bunnies, driving erratically, BBC 6 music, and totally irreverent comedy.
