Painter, Printmaker, Tutor, Illustrator
Hazel is a painter and printmaker living and working in Derbyshire. Preferring to work out of doors whenever possible, she uses a small scale and limited palette, sometimes working on small sheets of hardboard and with just a few tubes of paint. This "restriction" helps in two ways - to distil the essence of a scene without getting confused by too many details or mixing too many colours, and secondly because a small painting kit is a lot easier to carry around.
The paintings on this site are mostly landscapes of the Peak District, painted either from life or back in the studio from a sketch or idea worked up from a photograph. Enjoy!
