PROFILE

About Toni Swiffen Studio

Welcome to my website. I am Toni, based in Norfolk, England. I opened my Etsy shop in 2019, originally with painted stones but since early summer 2020 have offered a selection of original watercolour paintings.

Watercolour is my medium of choice because of the way the pigments mix on the paper, and the beautiful effects that can be created. Never predictable, it is best to let it have its way!

Many of my paintings are urban sketches and street scenes including representations of some of the beautiful places I've visited, in the absence of being able to make such a trip in 2020 or 2021.

Sometimes the very process of painting a place can take you back there in your mind, and hopefully looking at one of the paintings will do the same.

As well as beautiful architecture I am always inspired by animals and nature and am continuously learning about the beauty that surrounds us and how I can put my art to use in sharing it.
