artist info.

Elspeth Manders is a fine artist with a fascination in the broad spectrum of existence and ontology. Whilst studying at the University of Oxford, she developed a keen philosophical sensitivity which she explores in her paintings: oscillating between the familiar and the fantastical, the subjects of her art explore both the real and the metaphysical.

Elspeth has carved her niche in oil painting, expressing her         philosophical musings through an iridescent impasto style and impressionistic panache. Her works examine the safety and comfort of the quotidian, the beauty of the tangible surrounding world, and the wonder and unimaginable scale of the cosmos. Her oeuvre includes oil paintings, pencil drawings and prints.


She has featured artwork in exhibitions across the UK and regularly receives commissions. More details can be found under 'Key Projects'.

Elspeth also paints murals, indoor and outdoor. For more details click here.

Elspeth is also a pianist and composer, her music website can be found here.
