Featured Artist: Hester Berry!

Westward Ho by Hester Berry 61x48cm Oil

Hester Berry. An artist from the UK with a wonderful and loose painting style. I love her strokes of paint, each deliberate and geometrical in a way. Love the light in the clouds and on the beach. She has a variety of subjects – I think you will love them all!

Read a bit about Hester, from her website:

My practice is rooted in traditional representation and methods, but I constantly challenge my understanding of “painting” and explore ways paint can represent effects such as light, time, movement and climate. I use the marks available to me as economically as possible, distilling the image/feeling/moment into what is necessary, so that through objective representation there is enough room for subjective interpretation.

Having grown up in rural Devon, I have always been interested in landscape and the environment. My traditional university training in Aberystwyth nurtured this interest and also led me to explore life drawing and portraiture. After continuing my studies to complete an MA in Fine Art in Wimbledon, I taught life drawing and painting in Brighton and London. I have recently returned to Devon where I now live and work.

Catch you back here tomorrow!
