Niki Hare is a self-taught artist whose paintings reveal words of emotional honesty. She describes her word paintings as “writing themselves with no restraint.” Hare’s method of working involves layering paint and scraping back the layers to form textures. These layers and textures create a surface that seems to breathe life into the messages that are laid out before us.
After putting her artistic pursuits aside for 20 years to work with horses, Hare has come back to her art with passion, commitment, and an energy that is apparent throughout her work. She currently lives and works in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, England.
