Artist Hayley Reynolds BA (Hons)
Born February 1975, Bedfordshire
Experiences through extensive travel have shaped and continue to inspire the work I now produce some twenty years on. People, places, cultures and nature run heavily through my work. Most of my work (commissions aside) appear on an almost subconscious level. It is only half way through that I take over in a more conscious state of mind, guiding the piece to its completion.
The mediums I work in lend themselves beautifully to my style. The natural plasters reforming their solid, marbled state through carbonisation. The rust and verdigris patinas (although forced) are nature’s art and design compositions of the abstract world.
At times I let them be to allow the elements to speak for themselves. The addition of pigments allows my work to move freely between modern and traditional artistic styles. I like to call my Venetian pieces “a modern twist on fresco”.

Here, I record all aspects of my work. It’s a real smorgasbord of Artist Hayley Reynolds!
