Lois Hopwood

The paintings and drawings that Lois makes are directly informed by the landscape. Pen and ink drawings are made as sketches on site and then worked up in the studio. References are collected from the land: mosses, stones, lichens and bones which are then used to inform abstract canvases. The paintings become worlds of their own. Lois was the Winner of the 2010 Mall Galleries Discerning Eye Drawing Bursary.
