I’m Hettie and I’m a young artist from Sheffield. I experiment with a plethora of mediums but in this exhibition I’m choosing to focus solely on my oil paints as I am interested in blurring the lines between old and new techniques. I enjoy exploring different subjects and I have a specific interest in portraits (especially self-portraiture) and abstract landscapes. I am greatly inspired by the Impressionists and Expressionists, most importantly J.W.M. Turner’s landscapes and Edvard Munch’s portraits. I find inspiration in nature and in the emotional expression in portraiture.
