Hazel Cashmore was born in Warwickshire and moved to Caithness in 1978. Hazels work originates from her experience of the Caithness and Sutherland landscape, which is both her home and inspiration. Hazel works primarily in oil and acrylic paint. Towering seas, panoramic vistas, and brooding hills and moorland occupy her paintings, reflecting the qualities of Scotlands most northerly landscape. Hazel is compelled to capture the everchanging light which shifts across the natural environment revealing and changing the land. “In my work I try to convey a sense of place whilst at the same time using land, sea, and sky give access to the personal and universal. Hazel has exhibited widely throughout Britain and has work in private collections in UK, Canada, France, and USA. Hazel was tutor at North Highland College from 2004–2007. Since then she has devoted her time exclusively to her own work.
Studied Midwarwickshire college of Art ‚and Coventry Art College.
