Hazel Battersby studied at The Glasgow School of Art. She has exhibited widely in the UK, including at The Royal Scottish Acaddemy and The Royal Glasgow Insititute of the Fine Arts. She now teaches at St Peters School in York and develops her own studio practice. Her colourful and energetic paintings are inspired by texture, sturcture and surface. Through exploration of mark-making, drawing and collage, both abstract and descriptive properties develop and often paintings manifest themselves as expressive landscapes.
