Copyright Harborough Artists Cluster 2019

Carol Hay

I am an artist based just outside Market Harborough. I grew up on a small farm in the North West and I have worked with organic growers all my life. However my career was in the print industry where I was a graphic artist producing artwork for packaging and overseeing production up until I moved to this area. The environment is most important to me. My work focuses on landscape and studies of plants and flowers from my own garden. I am passionate about growing food, herbs and plants using organic methods. I am flexible in my approach to my work and I like to change and experiment with materials, though mostly I work on paper, typically with gouache and pencil.
