Thomas Haskett


I was born in Kent, and studied at Canterbury College of Art, and then at Falmouth School of Art.
In the early part of my career I worked as an illustrator in Cornwall before establishing myself as a painter in Pembrokeshire almost a decade ago.
Whilst working initially in watercolours and inks, I now work mostly in oils. My primary objective is recording the various qualities and varieties of light along the coastlines, hills and mountains of Wales, and thus distilling a sense of place and of time. Most of my work is produced on location, using boards prepared with my own gesso. My oil paints are also handmade, and all of my frames are hand finished.
