Featured Artist

An emerging artist whose main interest is in the landscape.

Tina’s inspiration comes mostly from the Mendip Hills, where she has lived with her husband and two children for over 20 years, and often involves working her way through lots of iPad photographs taken through the window on car journeys. This has become an important part of her creative process. “Colour can be a distraction for me and so I work from the images to produce monochromatic drawings in charcoal or graphite. These materials help me achieve the wonderful contrasts of light and dark that I see in the landscape. I often focus on trees, not necessarily because that is always my intention, but because that is what I am invariably drawn to and what excites me in the landscape around me.”

Tina has had work selected for, amongst others, the Friends of the Royal West of England Academy exhibition in Bristol and most recently at the Bath Society of Artists 112th Open Exhibition this spring for the second year running.
