Edwina’s work is inspired by hardedge abstract paintings that her father, an interior designer David Hicks, collected in the 1960s.
She has been making paintings since the late 90¹s. Edwina hasn’t had any formal training but has always drawn, and loves line, pattern and strong, clear colours. She works in acrylic on board, sometimes branching into three dimensions and making reliefs. Edwina also enjoys simple forms for their clarity.
Experimenting in drawing, trying out compositions and colour relationships in miniature before committing them to a larger scale. Edwina is local and lives in Oxford and works in a small studio at the back of her house.
