London, United Kingdom
UK-based Gill Button’s illustrations are done in a playful, painterly hand that makes the visages, coifs, and poses of high fashion both intimate and accessible. Forget digital manipulation or airbrushing: the magic is in seeing every stroke, every painterly decision. The paintings are sleek, fluid, and effortless.
Gill is also a frequent exhibitor of her paintings which is a pivotal part of her life as an artist. By continually creating personal pieces, her work moves forward and always remains fresh.
An obsessive painter of faces, Gill loves to capture the attitude and confidence that her subjects gain through self-adornment, whilst simultaneously striving to portray a glimmer of the vulnerability we all feel underneath.
