Hazel Lale grew up in Newark, Nottinghamshire, and has been interested in drawing and painting for as long as she can remember. Along the way she has been awarded many prizes for her art, the first at the age of five! After many other adventures and qualifications in other fields, she took a degree in Fine Art at Sheffield College of Art.
Hazel is an artist who is attracted to themes which allow her to break free of outlines with energy and capture her imagination. She travels widely and has exhibited in major galleries, including London's Mall Galleries, Alexandra Palace and elsewhere. Her work can be found in major collections in the UK, USA and Japan.
