Hazel Jarvis paints images of the natural world –maps, botanicals, abstract landscapes and mixed media collages.
Ms. Jarvis received her BA in History and Theory of Art from Sussex University in England. Upon moving to the United States, she studied botanical illustration in New York and, during a five-year residency in Tokyo in the 1990s, studied traditional Japanese painting with Shoko Ohta, a well known fourth generation artist. She has incorporated the highly decorative Japanese approach to nature into her own work.
Ms. Jarvis’ paintings have been featured in exhibitions organized by the American society of Botanical Artists, including shows at Longwood Gardens and the New York Horticultural Society. Her work is held in the permanent collection of the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation at Carnegie-Mellon University.
Hazel lives and teaches in Greenwich, Connecticut. To see more of Hazel’s work please visit the Park Slope Gallery website.
