Betty Harrison

Based in Cheltenham, Betty graduated from the University of Gloucester with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art Painting & Drawing.  Her evocative landscapes and seascapes, capture the elusive yet calming quality of misty valleys, leaden skies and low winter light on snow or sea.  She says of her most recent work
“Alongside my more traditional landscape based work, influenced by artists of the great 19th Century Romantic tradition such as Turner, Palmer and Friedrich, my recent paintings come from a more contemporary starting point. Though still largely landscape based, they emerge from more modern sources including cinema, television and in particular, digital photography.  Qualities of light and atmosphere continue to be a source of inspiration, together with ideas of mans’ interaction with, and struggle against, nature.  I have found this in favourite films, chance encounters with TV documentaries or journeys through winter landscapes where fog, rain, frost and snow are all grist to the mill”.
