Warm, nurturing, joyful, carefree and serene best sum up the colourful, original paintings of Antiguan artist Gilly Gobinet. Working mostly in acrylic and watercolor, her art , both figurative and abstract, is largely inspired by the beautiful, sunny island of Antigua, her island home in the Caribbean. The sparkling sea and myriad plants & animals, including an amazing marine life, are subjects of which she never tires. Her striking paintings of classic yachts come from her love of sailing and her involvement in the annual Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta.
This Antiguan artist also delights in celebrating the luscious curves of the female nude – highly appropriate in a warm climate where few if any clothes are needed.
An avid dog lover and owner, Gilly Gobinet gladly accepts commissions of pet portraits of dogs and cats, which bring great joy both to the owners and to the Antiguan artist. Her original paintings are based on high res photos supplied to her by the owners.
Gilly’s art is best viewed at her Art Gallery at her residence in Fitches Creek, Antigua – a beautiful, secluded waterfront property on the east coast.
She accepts commissions and can easily work from old photographs, recreating scenes or houses, or reproduces current locations, situations, people or animals with artistic alacrity. Not afraid of a challenge, Gilly also enjoys matching new paintings with different themed decors and colour schemes.
Gilly is also happy to provide one-on-one courses in watercolor and drawing to interested visitors to Antigua. All arrangements are specifically tailored to each individual need.
