The artist is influenced, by many artists she admires, as well as her frequent walk about the countryside for long periods of time in order to observe the changing times in nature. She is always learning, and Hazel continues to cultivate her own style, which seems to be evolving constantly.
“I have travelled to various parts of the world, and met all sorts of people in the arts, and sciences and people who are very spiritual. I am always learning in life and observing the obvious and not so obvious. I am always looking to conceive, cultivate and embrace new concepts and ideas in my art work. I go on walkabout around the country, observing places in all seasons and different times of the day. People have described my style of painting as classical and natural with a hint of contemporary and a new depth of atmosphere. I have sold many paintings in the UK and overseas.”
“Since I started painting full time in 2012, my paintings have been exhibited in Egg Space Liverpool, Corridor Gallery, Barts Arts, Palm House Sefton Park, Malvern Theatres, The Art Gallery Tetbury and Calderstones Park Gallery. Recent exhibitions include Frodsham Arts Centre, The Grosvenor Museum, Open Mind Open Art, Virgin Art, Royal Cambrian Academy and Deeside Open.”
