Barbara Hitch

I am a self taught artist, and since moving to Cumbria have expanded my horizons by attending a variety of workshops and sharing ideas and techniques with fellow artists. The natural environment, the changing weather patterns, and the Cumbrian Fells have been the focus and inspiration for most of my work. I enjoy the unpredictability of watercolour, but also work in acrylics, as well as mixed media pieces. My style can generally be described as fairly loose, although I occasionally like to take a stylistic approach using bright colours to produce a more primitive result. I have been part of the C-Art trail for the past three years and exhibited at Up-Front, and a variety of local art exhibitions.
