Canary Wharf near dusk a London cityscape (2020)
The lights from the offices are just beginning to come on casting a warm glow in the water. This is when the summer evenings are turning to Autumn, a time which is particularly good for twinkling lights of these iconic buildings. I take photos and quick sketches and can't wait to get home to start the paining. I use acrylic for the under paining and use best artists oils for the rest to complete it. It comes ready strung to hang or a simple frame if needed.
Clements is inspired by the world around her, principally the city and its architecture. Her travels to New York and the south of France, with their brilliant light and colors, influenced her greatly. She is also inspired by her hometown of London and its historic and iconic buildings. Clements enjoys the creative freedom of still lifes as well, as she is able to create a composition and control the shapes and colors
Clements has exhibited widely across the UK, notably at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and at the Mall Galleries with the Society of Women Artists and the Pastel Society. She was a finalist for Artist of the Year with Artist & Illustrator Magazine, and was awarded a residency at the Agora Gallery in New York City
