Brief Biography


Celia Wilkinson graduated from St Martins School of Art, London with a BA Hons in Fine Art Painting in 1989. 

Celia was born in Bristol in 1963 into a family of artists. Her father was a designer/lecturer and her mother a painter who were to become strong influences in her painting.

Having established her painting career in London, she then moved to the Isle of Wight in 2001 where she still lives and works. In 2010 her inspiration turned to the landscape surrounding her rural home. Her semi-abstract paintings reflect a more personal connection with the landscape rather than a true representation. Since 2010 her paintings have evolved into large, energetic, vibrant canvases which not only reflect the landscape of the Island but also her travels abroad.

The semi-abstract style of Celias work is a result of two strong influences in her life: Her father, a designer/lecturer who had a passion for post-modern design, and her mother who’s paintings inspired her especially her sense of colour. Through this merging of influences Celia has developed a completely unique style of painting.

Celia has exhibited widely across the UK and, more recently abroad. She was awarded a Lorenzo Il Magnifico award at Florence Biennale in 2021 when she was invited to show her work alongside Vivienne Westwood.

Her work has, this year been discovered by TV and film companies and will be on the sets of a Netflix series ‘You’ and an Amazon Prime series ‘Fear’ both being filmed this year 2024 as well as being featured in a radio programme for the BBC.

Her work is in private collections both in the UK  and abroad.

Our platform provides carefully curated access to artworks selected by art experts, guaranteeing a selection of the highest quality.

Our Mission and Actions

At THE ART HUB, our mission is initially focused on addressing a profound imbalance within the art world, specifically catering to women artists. In the current landscape, a mere 5% to 15% of artworks traded at auctions are created by women, starkly contrasted by the overwhelming 85% to 95% of works by male artists. This disparity is not only confined to auctions but is also prevalent in exhibitions, where male-created art significantly overshadows that of their female counterparts.

By concentrating our efforts on female artists, THE ART HUB aims to counteract this imbalance and champion women within the art community. This initiative is designed to amplify the visibility of women artists, making their creations more accessible to a wider audience, and ultimately striving for a more balanced representation of genders within art auctions and exhibitions. By prioritizing women in art, our platform boldly advocates for equality and diversity within the art sector, signaling a commitment to reshaping and enriching the cultural landscape.

Artist Statement


My paintings, although based on the landscape, are very much about my personal response to the place rather than a true representation. I paint from memory which allows me to capture the very essence of what I feel and see and gives me the freedom to tell my story. 

I use acrylics which allow me to work fairly quickly and build up layers often leaving parts of the underpainting visible which glow with luminosity, giving the painting another depth.

Colour is of massive importance to me and I still find it fascinating that in the winter months my colour palette invariably defaults to earthy colours and in spring/summer it becomes a much warmer, more vibrant palette which is completely subconscious  because I paint from the heart.

I never tire of the landscape which is forever changing, especially with the threat of climate change. I find it fascinating how it is both vulnerable and yet so resilient and living on a small island really brings it home. I still have lot to explore.


My goal is to reach a wider audience outside of the UK.
