SKEVOULLA GORDON
Skevoulla is half Greek and half Dutch and currently is based in the UK near Windsor. She lives there with her family in a funny little cottage where she spends most of her days drawing in her shed at the bottom of the garden.

Skevoulla has always felt a deep connection with nature. Especially plants and flowers. “They bring me so much joy and these are a recurring theme”. 

She also has a deep love for still-life in art, for cosy vignettes and interiors. She loves to bring the outside in using natural elements combined with beautiful objects and books to create a joyful and lovely scene. Skevoulla collects vintage and antique objects, especially cups, vases and little trinket boxes and has a deep joy in incorporating these in her still life arrangements. “I’m a bit of a magpie! Literature and old books are also treasured objects and I also like to include these in my drawings. I feel the memory of a book or a story can be a beautiful way of connecting with people”.

Skevoulla is inspired daily by nature, by flowers and plants and walks by the river near her house. Regarding artists, the list is endless and ever evolving! Special favourites include Matisse, Van Gogh, Monet, Vanessa Bell, Winifred Nicholson and Kiki Smith and she also likes looking through books about Medieval illuminations. The warm jumble of antique and vintage shops and markets, pattern on pattern and old book shops influence her.

"I'd like my artwork to leave people feeling joyful and warm. Cosy and maybe a little nostalgic! Inspired to see the beauty in nature and in simple things at home."
