Pascale Steenkiste

Pascale is a visual artist based in Glasgow, UK.

Her love for art has always been there especially paintings but creating her own work started in more recent years after working with children. What spoke to her the most is the way children have no inhibitions about their work, it flows naturally. As Picasso famously said ‘every child is an artist, the problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up’.

She is an intuitive artist and has a love for abstraction. She works with acrylics on canvas and board.

Pascale’s work is predominantly non-objective, it is all about “the felt sense”. The physicality of her work means she is adding and subtracting, adding and taking away until the final work emerges, creating depth with saturated splashes of colour together with large planes of muted tones.

In recent times she has started working on bigger canvasses where she embraced the freer, looser and more energetic marks.

Her inspiration is taken from places, experiences, emotions, memories with a big dollop of experimentation.

Pascale has work in private collections in the UK, Canada and Belgium.

She runs a small art group here in Glasgow.
