Bess Harding

Bess Harding is a self-taught artist and illustrator, based in Worthing, West Sussex. Always creative, it took a few years of experimenting with different things to find her niche.

She has been painting with oils for the past couple of years, and is most interested in still life. She seeks to capture the calm grace and quiet composure found in certain objects, exploring how inanimate objects can be so full of character and self-possession.

Bess exhibited at London’s Mall Galleries in February 2018, with a painting selected for the Columbia Threadneedle Art Prize.
