I enjoy painting objects with interesting surface details and textures. I like the challenge of creating the interplay between light and shadow on these surfaces and exploring how this dynamic can create both depth and interest in the paintings. I also find the subtle interactions between the complex decorative elements and embossed patterns found in the various materials and objects I paint very satisfying.
“Wigginton displays vibrancy and powerful control with her mixture of austere underpainting and colourful pinpoint brushwork. In fact, many of her smaller paintings remind one of the exactness and delicacy of needlepoint.”
– R.M. Vaughan, Arts Atlantic, 1992
