Artist Jocelyn Day has an exhibit of her paintings at the Coach-House Gallery at Les Islets, St Pierre du Bois, Guernsey until early January 2013.

Her paintings capture the magical light of rough and serene seascapes. She has always been enthralled by Guernsey’s magical, ever changing coastal light and sea conditions, which she captures so well in her paintings.

She was born and brought up in Guernsey, and was drawn to the sea at an early age, which has remained central to her paintings all her life.

She spent four years at the Brighton School of Art before married life took her to many parts of the world including Australia, the USA, and France.

She painted and exhibited her paintings wherever she lived including Australia, the UK, and in Paris and Lyon.  Her paintings are in private collections on both sides of the Atlantic as well as at the World Health Organisation in Lyon.

In recent years, her art has become increasingly impressionistic, and more abstract, to capture the ever changing light and coastal sea conditions around Guernsey.

In 2007 one of her five paintings of her niece Sarah Day and three other Guernsey women, rowing across the Atlantic while experiencing Force 10 gales, called Mission Atlantic won the Mourant prize.
