About the Artist
A Gibraltar artist, who exhibits both traditional and abstract works. She remains connected to her roots and has made a name for herself both locally and internationally. Matthews enjoys her time in travel, and promotes the rapturing beauty of her home town through soft textures and dreamy color palettes, capturing the romanticism encompassing abstraction to Impressionist and landscapes to urban views.
“The Rock of Gibraltar stands proud as the Gateway to the Mediterranean. The turquoise waters that surround it have been my inspiration since I was a child. The Spirit of its waters has offered a safe haven to thousands of sailors, who have found a welcome to their vessels and people, which is second to none. It is my home and my muse.” – Maribel Matthews
