“I love the immediacy of sketching in pen, everything is on the page mistakes and all. I use my sketch book like a camera taking shot after shot as I refine my search for a good field shape. I particularly like the almost geometric quality that the field and hedge lines impose on the landscape. ”
Lois Hopwood trained in Fine Art at Newcastle University, Painting and drawing have always been at the heart of her work and she has exhibited regularly throughout the UK in group and one person shows.
The breadth and depth of her interests manifest themselves in the innovative ideas she is pursuing, especially those related to the natural landscape of Shropshire, Herefordshire and Radnorshire.
