My name is Hazel Bailey and I love to paint using mainly acrylics and inks. The great outdoors, especially by the sea, plays a big part in my life and it’s a recurring theme in my artwork. I’m lucky to be able to walk the Durham coast, where I live, most days. I studied fine art and graduated with BA Hons at Sunderland University and now I paint as a way to express myself, as much as possible.
Texture excites me. I enjoy painting heavily textured canvases and the process of building up many layers really appeals to me. I also love to use lots of colour. I’d like viewers to become immersed in my paintings, to be able to spend a lot of time looking at them and see lots of different elements. I’m constantly inspired and I’m always creating something.
