Hester Berry

Guest Tutor

Hester Berry is a Devon-based painter with a particular interest in landscape and the enviromemt - she taught life drawing at Draw from 2011-15 and returns every year to teach landscape painting here, as well as teaching on our landscape paintings retreats.

What Hester says about her work:

"My practice is rooted in traditional representation and methods, but I constantly challenge my understanding of “painting” and explore ways paint can represent effects such as light, time, movement and climate. I use the marks available to me as economically as possible, distilling the image/feeling/moment into what is necessary, so that through objective representation there is enough room for subjective interpretation."
