“Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter.” Oscar Wilde.
This wonderfully simple quote from Oscar Wilde exemplifies what Josette Fenech, the artist is all about. A modest, upcoming Maltese artist, Josette' s favourite mediums are oils and acrylics and she draws her inspiration from myriad sources including art of all kinds and genres. Josette loves nothing more than exploring galleries and art exhibitions at home and abroad and takes every opportunity she can to learn from her experiences. Josette has her own definitive style though she really admires the paintings of Van Gogh and Monet.
