Jyoti McKie is an artist with an international reputation. She studied art and sculpture at Homerton College, Cambridge, U.K. She taught art in London prior to moving to Scotland in 1972 where her work as an artist began in earnest. Whilst living and painting in Scotland she exhibited widely and also pioneered work in art therapy. In 1987 she immigrated to Australia where her art took on a fresh and powerful dimension.
As an artist who travels extensively Jyoti has often exhibited work inspired by her journeys through out many countries. Her work is shown in private and gallery collections through out the world. Besides being an artist Jyoti is a published author and continues to happily combine these two talents in fresh and innovative ways.
Jyoti’s versatility and skill as an artist shows a range of subject matter including landscape, figurative and abstract work. Her work reveals a spirit and freedom of expression which has the courage to continuously go beyond previous limits. Her dynamic use of colour combines beautifully with a passionate approach to the subjects she chooses giving the viewer an invitation to dive right into the painting and participate to the full.
Painting for me is part of my life blood and has played a huge role in my life since childhood. Gifted from an early age with being able to perceive subtle energy I have found art to be a marvellous avenue for bringing forth images of a visionary nature. In my art I like to reveal a spiritual dimension and freedom of expression which has the courage to continuously go beyond previous limits. Using dynamic colour and textures I love to combine visionary imagery with a deep sense of the beauty and sacredness within all life. Approaching the act of creativity with both passionate joy and total presence as an artist I find I can engage in a versatility of subject matter; choosing most of all to give the viewer an invitation to dive right into the painting and participate to the full.
