Moira Hazel

Moira Hazel has a compulsive desire to paint, create, make marks and produce vivid and expressive work. She uses lively surface texture and intense colours to capture the essence of a place or subject, not restricted to realism.

Moira loves to travel both at home and abroad for inspiration, including annual visits to Australia. She especially enjoys the vibrant colours, light and brightness of the Mediterranean regions and is fascinated by the fishing villages of the West Country.

I was born in South Wales and now live in Dorset having lived in East Anglia for nearly 30 years. Visual stimulation from different surroundings, colour combinations from nature or photographic images, or even a piece of fabric can create ideas for inclusion in a painting.
