Oil by Saskia Skoric
Beside the Red Door
Saskia was named by her parents after the wife of the artist Rembrandt, not only because her mother is Dutch but mainly to choose a name that was uncommon in England.
It soon became apparent that there was more to the connection than just the coincidence of the name, when at her primary school, she showed some considerable flair for art, producing some easily recognisable images in her school work.
Besides being interested in many other things throughout her school times she always kept up a keen interest in her art work studying an art foundation course at Maidstone College of Art.
When time permitted together with raising three children Saskia continued to produce many family portraits, animal/pet paintings, landscapes and a range of other subjects.
Having taken on many commissions Saskia is now expresses herself using oils and uses the technique of "finger painting", which is applying the oils straight to the canvas only with the fingers. Saskia's enthusiasm for art is continually leading her to explore new ideas and ways to achieve excellence and is driven by her desire to improve on the last painting
