Francesca Bex

Born 1970, Lives and works on the Wiltshire Dorset Border

I draw inspiration from the natural environment and experience a sensory and emotional response to being in the landscape. I respond with texture, colour and shape in a gestural way, using paint to articulate these feelings and experiences into images.
