Harriet is a self-taught local artist and has exhibited at the Designers Guild in Bristol, Dursley Art Center, Bocabar and has carried out a number of private commissions. In her latest body of work, travelling to the Western Isles of Harris and Lewis has inspired her. This part of the world has a wealth of dramatic and beautiful scenery that she has expressed in her oil paintings. “I was so moved by the vast ever changing open skies and ruggedly beautiful unspoilt landscape”.
Harriet’s work captures the atmosphere of a scene that has been created by the constant shifting of the elements. She creates her paintings by building up many thin layers of oil paint that is then worked back to reveal glimpses of landscapes and the constant changes in the skies. Her paintings are an emotional response to a very special place.
