Hazel Soan is one of the UK's most highly acclaimed artists. Her stunning oils are executed with a flawless technique which records every nuance of light and shadow, bringing each stylish scene to life before our eyes.
Hazel was born in 1954 and trained in London and Leicester before graduating in 1976. Since that time she has built up an exceptional list of successful solo and mixed shows both in the UK and abroad in countries as widespread as Japan, Venezuela and Zimbabwe. A trained pilot, Hazel has flown a single engine aircraft all over the world and wherever she goes her sketch book goes too. A born adventurer and lover of the outdoors, she also sails from inspirational location to inspirational location, and explores more challenging terrain in her land rover.
Hazel's work is held in private and public collections all over the world. She is well-known for her role as an Art Expert on channel 4's popular daytime programme, Watercolour Challenge, and her two series of Splash of Colour made by Anglia TV. She is also the author of several highly-regarded books on watercolour. Hazel's work is collected by BP, Hilton Hotels, Royal Caribbean, Ritz Club, BBC Television and many other private individuals and corporations.
"If I could wish for anything for my paintings it is that the pleasure and excitement I receive from my subjects will be experienced by those who later view them."
