Sasha Harding

One of a family of five sisters and a brother, Sasha was brought up in and around Swanage.

Painting with a limited palette of colours allows Sasha to concentrate on her interest in form, which, clearly seen in her still life painting, is carried through in her depiction of coastal scenes. In these she explores the gentle tones of a beach seen under a cloudy sky. or in the reflective langour of a summer day. Her observations become more sharply drawn in bright sunlight, with clear colours and crisp accents. Sasha's sense of the absurd sparkles irrepressibly through her work but the lasting impression is one of great affection for her subject.

Sasha is now considered to be one of the up-and-coming young artists of the day .
