Boo Mallinson studied Fine Art at The Byam Shaw School of Art and City of Guilds School of Art in London before moving to Dorset in 2005.
When producing an art piece, Boo starts tracing initial charcoal drawings which act as a starting point for her paintings; they then evolve in an organic and intuitive way once she starts painting back in the studio. She works in various mediums including oil, acrylic, charcoal, ink and pastel. Paintings vary in size from large canvases to smaller more intimate works on paper.
Boo’s paintings are a visual diary and her way of recording journeys through the landscape: some paintings remain very close to their origins, hinting at a place visited or remembered. Inviting others to share her experiences and using shape, line, colour and above all light, she allows the viewer the freedom to put their own interpretation into the painting.
