Born in 1972 and living in East Devon, Antoinette (D. A. Coleman) is a self-taught artist who has spent many years learning her art. Working mainly in oils, Antoinette spends hours paying attention to every detail, with each painting taking a month or more to complete. Antoinette enjoys painting local scenes whether they be the boats at Beer (which she says is surprising considering she suffers from terrible seasickness), her hometown or nearby woodland scenes. Antoinette also likes to paint from imagination. One of Antoinette’s paintings was selected by The South West Academy of Fine & Applied Arts for their 2023 open exhibition.
As well as painting boats, Antoinette likes to paint loose, atmospheric landscapes mostly from imagination.
