Jeffrey Hoare

My work covers a wide output. I trained at Chelsea and the Royal College of Art, but I also studied mime, educational TV, modern dance and I studied etching with Julian Trevelyan. I always enjoy new challenges.

I find my subjects from the environment around me and I paint on the spot, not in a studio. I absorb the energy around me and I feel that my paintings reflect or capture something of the natural world I am observing, if only for a fleeting moment. I am inspired also by words such as the dry salvages by T S Eliot, which reflect my feelings about the sea.

I have been painting in the sea for many years – moving up and down the shore with the tides, using the waters movement and the breaking waves to shape the colours on the canvas.
