Celia Martine Pickering Art


Celia is an artist, independent art teacher, and mother of teenage twins based in West London. 

'Celia's love for painting on rag cotton paper, with matt Emulsion paint, make her work unique, her use of ready mixed emulsion keeps her pallets the same but her subjects can vary from botanical and shapes, to nudes and still life, all on the cusps of abstraction.

Celia's passion for colour is clearly shown in her artworks and her clear use of putting a pallet together is an interiors designers dream.' Press release for her solo show 2024

‘My love for art has been with me for as long as I can remember, but it was in 2020 that I began my professional artistic journey.

Unlike many of my contemporaries, I'm primarily self-taught and have developed my own approach to art that is both original and personal. My paintings are inspired by Mid Century style and the natural world, with each piece reflecting my deep appreciation for beauty and my unique perspective on life. Through my artwork, I aim to transport viewers to a world of vibrant colours and imaginative shapes, inviting them to lose themselves in the moment and let their imaginations run wild, always hoping to bring a feeling of joy.

In addition to creating art, I'm also a dedicated art teacher who believes in nurturing creativity and helping others find their own artistic voice. My teaching philosophy is centred around the belief that everyone has the potential to be an artist, and my goal is to provide my students with the guidance and support they need to unlock their creativity and achieve their artistic goals’.
