Isabella Gibson Wood creates colourful atmospheric paintings. Working in oils on linen supports she achieves luminosity and depth of colour by applying multiple layers of paint, the translucency of the colours revealing elements beneath. Garnering much of her inspiration from nature; chiefly the elements, she manages to capture the drama, unpredictablility and impressiveness that such natural forces display.
Working in either copper, sterling and/or fine silver wire Isabella creates unique jewellery using weaving and coiling techniques to embellish and support, most often, beautiful semi-precious stones. Much of Isabella's designs incorporate very old and established techniques including viking weave and chainmaille.
