Janine Baldwin PS 

Artist's Statement:

Living on the North Yorkshire coast I am surrounded by beautiful moors, woodland and coastline - these natural environments are a constant inspiration, and sketches made directly in the landscape form the basis of my studio work. I use layers of charcoal, pastel and graphite to gradually create my paintings, and I feel these layers reflect the sheer depth of detail in the Yorkshire landscape, from the tiniest plants to vast forests on the horizon line. Influences include Joan Eardley, Cy Twombly and Kurt Jackson
