Henriette Busch

I am a contemporary painter who creates evocative semi-abstract and abstract paintings of vivid landscapes and figures.
Born in Berlin, Germany, when I was twelve I moved with my parents to Liberia, West Africa. After that I lived in Suriname (South America), North America, Liberia again and finally England, over 35 years ago.

I am drawn to beauty of all kinds - be it the beauty of nature or the beauty of the human body, or the beauty of shapes, forms and colours and how they fit together. My paintings are also influenced by the years I lived in Africa and South America - the houses I lived in, the colours, the music and the beauty of these places have left their imprint on my soul and permeate much of my work. My current landscapes are often based on the beautiful English countryside which is endlessly inspiring. I work with all types of paint - pastels, acrylics, oils and watercolours - it depends on the subject, and I paint from sketches, reference photos and from images in my head. I also like experimenting with different processes such as pouring, and using epoxy resin. Colour is a very important element in my work because it can so well describe a particular feeling or emotion.
My work reflects the culmination of my life experience and turning the best of my memories into paintings. In these I aim to capture the essence of a place or thing, the fleeting moment and the feeling that that moment evoked.

After a Fine Art Degree course at the University of Hertfordshire (2003) I have exhibited widely all over the UK and also in Berlin in January 2020. My paintings are in many private collections in the UK, The Netherlands, Germany, USA and Dubai.
