Regan Johnston & Christa Rijneveld

Overview

Regan and Christa's paintings begin with a moment of inspiration, whether climbing a mountain to a dramatic landscape or seeing an interesting light coming through the trees.  Nature has always been their main inspiration, the mountains  with their soft curves and sharp edges and their intriguing layers and shapes.  Regan's work focuses on the wildlife whilst Christa's simplistic style navigates the painting, setting the scene with her mesmerising mountain ranges.

Once inspired, Regan and Christa create their composition spending time detailing the composition by doing different sketches of the idea, always thinking of the light source and how to bring depth to the painting.

Conservation is important to part of Regan and Christa's work and this through their paintings they are trying to raise awareness to protect wildlife and the places they call home.  Our planet is changing and there are so many small changes happening alongside the obvious ones that we're trying to capture with our work.
