Keshani Douglas

Not Not The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition”  from17th June – 20th August 2022

Keshani loves working in soft pastels, pencils and inks where she focuses on colour, movement and vibrancy for a more intense result in an impressionistic way with a sense of abstract. She loves her artwork to be bold and lively.

Keshani Douglas is a Wiltshire based artist who was born in London.  Her focus lies in painting interesting locations and situations.

Having grown up in an artistic background Keshani is a self-taught artist who has been lucky enough to understand art as second nature. Keshani is greatly influenced by her late grandfather, Harold Philip Matthews who had been Head of Department of Painting at Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts.

Keshani loves working in soft pastels, pencils and inks where she can focus on colour, movement and vibrancy for a more intense result in an impressionistic way with a sense of abstract. She loves her artwork to be bold and lively.

Keshani is an international artist who works not only from her studio based in Wiltshire but also her studio based on the island of Gozo, near Malta where she travels frequently throughout the year. She is greatly inspired by the different locations because they provide different colours, texture and light.

“I absolutely love the noisy scratching sounds of my pastels on paper whilst painting and mark making. I love it to the point I sometimes use both hands at the same time to paint in a vigorous fashion as I get drawn into the world of  colour, interpretation and expression.”
