Biography
HAZEL BIGNELL
Close

Born in Suffolk, I attended a Foundation course at Gt. Yarmouth where I was awarded the course prize and followed this with a B.A. (Hons) in Fine Art at the Norwich School of Art.

I continue to build up a body of paintings that fulfils along standing vision. My work is continually evolving within the theme. I love the process and the challenge of seeking new ways to express my ideas.

Since childhood, I have spent summer holidays on the Suffolk coast, drawing inspiration for my work from this experience. I feel a tangible infinity with the location and it is the driving force behind my work.

I feel passionate about my art work. I spend hours by the water’s and cliff edge. I sketch, observe, walk, and take photos for reference and collect found objects of interest which may be later used in art work.

My studio is an oasis where I can become totally absorbed in the creative process to develop my ideas.

I use mixed media techniques. I work on board or canvas in varying sizes and formats. I use mainly water based paints as a ground.
