Hester lives in Devon and is a well renowned artist in the South West. She paints local landscapes but is also interested in life drawing and portraiture and has taught widely throughout the South West, Brighton and London. Although she paints using traditional methods, she experiments widely with techniques and her work is always evolving and moving forward. Her brushstrokes are economical yet perfectly capture the feel of a place and her use of light is striking and one of the hallmarks of her unparalleled work.
We were lucky enough to be able to invite Hester and her family to Scilly in the summer of 2021 where she spent a week sketching, taking photos and gaining inspiration for a body of work for Tamarisk Gallery.
