Seren Bell

Seren Bell’s work is rooted in the Welsh landscape where she lives.

Seren makes detailed drawings in crayon, pen and ink, mainly of sheep. Although she feels an affinity for all animals, Seren returns to sheep again and again. It’s not just the soft colours of the fleece and the warm bulk of them, but the ancient bony heads and the look in the eye that exert a hold on her. There is also something about their being in the landscape that is reassuring and timeless.

Seren loves the sight of a flock moving slowly and eternally across a Welsh hillside scattered with hawthorn trees. Her drawings celebrate their unwavering gaze and presence.
