About Margaux Powell

In the last few years, I have suffered with depression and anxiety. As part of my healing, I started my own 'Art Therapy', sketching my innermost thoughts, there were a lot of dark drawings and sketches from 2019, mainly with colour pencils and water colours. In 2020, I decided to pick up my brushes (28 years later) and paint what I feel, what I see, my thoughts and my perception of this world (in a more positive note but still the rebellious streak comes through).
I love landscapes. My Italian series, came from my visits to Italy (I love Italy) and the emotions I felt there. Each of my painting is unique and there is no two of the same. I hope my pieces of art can touch your heart and evoke the emotions deep rooted within you, bringing you positivity, laughter, love and joy.
My abstract pieces represent my inner most thoughts and feelings. I always let my emotions run when I am doing my abstract pieces, I try not to control it and use the colours, strokes and the multi-layers to represent the deep rooted thoughts.
My London abstract style artwork is a tribute to London (my home) during the pandemic, trying to bring some colours and joy back into the beautiful London we know despite the pandemic and lockdown.
