Annabel Keatley

Annabel Keatley is an English painter living near Salobreña who makes her own paper .

She loves colour and texture and creates her translucent hanging paper sculptures by combining many layers of  her handmade papers with light. Her large canvases are the results of building up a textured surface over many months  by combining vibrant colour ( oil paint )  with  plaster, beeswax, sand, dry pigment and leaves.

In all mediums her inspiration is the landscape, whether  working directly from it with watercolour or from imagination and memory in her studio with oil and mixed media.
