Silvi Schaumloeffel oil painting  brushes

Paul Klee said: A line is a dot that went for a walk.

That thought makes me smile. I imagine my dots to dance!

                                       Silvi Schaumloeffel


Silvi Schaumloeffel is an expressive contemporary oil painter living and working in Kelmscott by the Thames. 


Silvi was born in 1979 in Tuebingen, Germany. After her degree in Sports Marketing Silvi travelled extensively through her work and has lived in Germany and Spain before moving to the UK, where she still lives and works.

Silvi trained in classic and contemporary oil painting and finished her Diploma at the Norfolk Painting School under Martin Kinnear in July 2016. She is now teaching and assisting traditional and contemporary oil painting classes in Norfolk, the Cotswolds and here in Oxfordshire, both groups and individuals.


Her studio is located opposite St George’s Church in the picturesque village of Kelmscott, well known for Kelmscott Manor, which was William Morris's summer residence, leader of the Arts and Crafts movement – a place he considered 'a Heaven on Earth'...

Her Inspiration

Her painting style is influenced by classical masters such as J. W. Turner, Joan Mitchell, Richard Diebenkorn, Per Kirkeby and Joan Eardley for their  innovative use of colour, expressive mark making and abstraction as well as contemporary artists such as  Eric Aho and Frank Auerbach.

Her Technique

Thoroughly studying the techniques and artistic evolvements of the old and modern masters continues to give Silvi a thorough understanding of the traditional craft elements of oil painting which builds the foundation for her work. Silvi applies their techniques and her own original thinking and brushwork into her expressive contemporary paintings to create unique pieces of work. Her technical focus is on expressive mark making and colour relationships. 


Silvi’s practice involves both plein air and studio work and embraces an extensive range of materials and techniques both traditional and contemporary.
