ABOUT THE ARTIST
Jess Hazell is an Australian self taught painter based in Margate, UK. She focuses on oil paintings that illustrate feminine energy, a connection to nature and ordinary aspects of life.
By illustrating the feminine experience through a colourful palette and emotive brushwork, Jess has created a body of work that seeks to awaken our inner power. Her work gives permission to live authentically, unapologetically and with the much needed confidence we all continuously seek. Through this lens, we understand and appreciate the human need to retreat into a safe space. We recondition our thinking in a modern age that tells us to overwork and succumb to an impossibly high standard of beauty and productivity, to a perspective that allows rest, soul nurturing and realignment to a more authentic living style.
Jess creates these meaningful works through portraiture, still life and the portrayal of nature. She understands the importance of highlighting moments in life that may seem insignificant, but are part of a greater picture that makes our condition of living much more magical.
Working to visualise the charm and allure of the mundane and simplistic, Jess creates paintings that speak to our collective need for mindfulness.
Jess has had numerous exhibitions across London, Australia, Athens and Prague.
