About Me

Hi World!

I'M Skip Gosnell

Sold my first painting at a high school art show - a seascape (go figure) with waves crashing against a cliff wall. The buyer was drawn to the bold bright colors not necessarily seen in nature. For me the ocean is an endless expression of motion, changing day to day with the wind and tides. Going out and coming back, each wave unique.

I graduated in 1986 with a degree in Visual Communications from the University of Delaware. With a background in graphic design and photography, I continue developing my painting style through experimenting with multiple media and attending artist workshops.

It took years, but I finally got it through my head to just let go and enjoy the creative process. .

Abstract sea- and landscapes are the primary subject matter of my artwork. Acrylics as medium of choice allows for heavy thick paint as well as thin washes. Using contrast of bright and shadow, I create a visual language of shape, form, and color with a degree of freedom from real world visual references. I love experimenting with colors and brush strokes that express an emotion or mood of a particular scene or object; quite often the end result is unexpected, filled with interesting forms and textures. Using varying tools and brushes, I create layered works with an illusion of depth, pops of color, and contrasting shapes. 

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my art & design products.
