    Bess Harding

    Bess Harding is a self-taught artist, based in West Sussex. Always creative, it took a few years of experimenting with different areas to find her niche.
    Her lightbulb moment came during an oil painting evening class at The Art Academy at the end of 2016, and she has been painting with oils ever since. She is most interested in still life, seeking to capture the calm grace and quiet composure found in certain objects and exploring the character
    and self-possession that can found in the inanimate. She enjoys giving things a little stage to sit quietly on so that they might be considered.

    Having grown up by the coast in Dorset, Bess found the call of the sea strong, moving from London to Worthing in 2018. The inevitable inspiration that followed has led to a body of semi-abstract
    seascape paintings that sit alongside her still lifes.

    Bess’s work has been selected for the prestigious Columbia Threadneedle Art Prize (2018), the Society of Women Artists annual exhibition (2019) and the Royal Society of British Artists annual exhibition (2020).
