Twinkle Troughton is an artist living and working in Margate. Using oil and solvents on paper to create luminosity and form through corrosion and decay, her work is inspired by both the personal and the political. A love of storytelling and for nature, and a strong connection to her European heritage informs much of the content, whilst the societal often underlies the work.
Twinkle has exhibited both in the UK and internationally and has work in private collections. Recent solo exhibitions include Remnant at Paper Gallery, Manchester (see more here) and Wild Sanctum at Haeckles HQ, Margate (see more here)
Alongside her practice Twinkle also curates exhibitions, writes, and is the editor of Margate Mercury after five years of being the magazine's Arts Editor.

I am fundraising so I can study for an MA in Fine Art at City & Guilds London Art School from September 2023.
To do this, I am selling a series of £100 paintings like the one below. All are A5 oil on paper.

“With the fine skills of an old master she paints
her fabulous paintings…”
Wiener Zeitung (Vienna Daily)
“Twinkle’s experimental fusion of oil and chemicals to create the grim fairy-tale landscape in which humanity is rejected, lost and possibly found again worked in response to what Picasso started when he made Guernica – paintings that resonate, tell the story to remind and warn.”
Sue Mulholland, Director of Art and Design and Technology Dulwich College
