TINA SPRATT

Tina Spratt was born in Somerset in 1976 and completed her education at the University of Wolverhampton, graduating with a BA (Hons) degree in Illustration in 1998. However she chose not to pursue Illustration as a career, instead it was her passion for drawing the human figure that she returned to. Although an early admirer of artists such as Lucian Freud, Rembrandt and Caravaggio, Tina nevertheless found her own direction with the emphasis being on light and mood. Her work has developed through differing levels – experimenting with limited palette and cropping in her early work and more recently with the exploration of texture and mood, together with the familiar theme of fabric. All of this lends itself well to the closely observed beautiful and powerful work she produces. Tina's work really caught the public imagination when she had a solo show in Bristol. Within a week she had sold a total of 27 Pastels and Oils; BBC Radio had broadcast an interview; she was contacted by TV, and the national press published their interview. Her work continues to go from strength to strength with all paintings selling as soon as they are exhibited. Tina is clearly an outstanding painter and in my opinion has huge potential.
