Plum Neasmith studied at the University of Gloucestershire for five years gaining a BA in Fine Art. As an undergraduate she won the Grant Thornton travel award.
A starting point for her painting is often the experience of a place. Process and chance are a fundamental part of the process as well as utilising the often slow, indirect and multi-layered nature of memory. The work is trying to remember something, perhaps through the freezing of time, to reveal something new about a subject as well as attempting to capture its essence or illusory nature.
Neasmith currently lives and works in Cheltenham and is a practising Nicheren Buddhist.
