Painter : Lois Sykes

Lois Sykes was educated at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art and studied further for 2 years at Atelier Goetz in Paris.

She has exhibited in many shows in the US and London and the South East, notably the Museum of Fine Art in Philadelphia: Art Expo, New York City; the Osborne Gallery, Covent Garden; Piers Feetham Gallery, Chelsea; the Barbican Centre, London; the Llewellyn Alexander Gallery, London; the London Contemporary Art Fair; the Medici Gallery, London; the Fine Arts Society, London; the Society of Equestrian Artists.

Always one to look for the unusual, always one to find the unexpected, Lois Sykes continues to interest and entertain with her paintings and images of life about the countryside and around the farmhouse. Breathing new life and humour into animal paintings, Lois does not undermine her subjects. Her paintings are uncluttered and easy to look at. The balanced contrasts of the figurative elements and the suggestion of animal personalities lead one into stories they may tell. The lovely, colourful, tightly cropped compositions focus the viewer on her statement – her work is full of amusement and a love of life.
