Sarah Hanner Hopwood - 2022
I'm inspired by the hills of Wales and the majestic Scottish Highlands, and colours of the Mediterranean. My love of the outdoors along with the human need to connect with open spaces led to my expression of the landscape; using whatever tools I find to mark out undulations, colours, petals and the occasional stile or pathway. My imagined landscape paintings are layered using collage, watercolour and stitched thread. My style is achieved not often by brushes but by using other found objects to tease and play with the water and pigment to blend and lead colours.
I work full-time for the NHS which I love, so painting has to be part time for now, however I am delighted to be exhibiting at the Ayot Art Show this year.
