Hazel is a painter and art tutor living and working in Derbyshire.  Her paintings depict Derbyshire’s varied landscape, with many completed on-location using acrylics or oils. She captures quiet unassuming landscapes that explore the subtle moods of the seasons, exploring forgotten corners and unusual views away from the beaten path.

In 2020 Hazel designed and published a book “Castleton in Quarantine” featuring drawings from the first two months of lockdown.
