Stephanie Tuckwell studied at Goldsmiths, London and has exhibited both nationally and internationally throughout her career. In 2008 she won the University of Glamorgan Art Purchase Prize and was in 2009, was awarded the prize for Wales’ ING Discerning Eye Exhibition. More recently, Stephanie was selected to show two paintings in the Sunday Times Watercolour competition, London.
The focus of her practice is rooted in her experiences of her environment, from the wide-open expanses of landscape and seascape to more intimate spaces. Tuckwell orchestrates making fluid and sensory explorations of water-colour, ink, charcoal and gesso to create marks, which move across the surface of the drawing, painting or print. She works in series, very often repeating similar forms but in different configurations and scale. Just as her focus of inspiration lies at the edges of the air, land and sea, her creative practice lies in the area between the intentional and incidental. Working at these edges demands a mind-full awareness and presence that embodies her experiences of the landscape and natural surroundings. She aims to evoke a sense of time, memory and place.
