Esther Price was born in Lincoln, in June 1969. She works from her studio in Barnstaple, North Devon where she lives with her husband, 3 sons and her dog, Mahler. Esther’s love affair with the North Devon coastline began when as a child, she spent many family holidays staying at Steart Farm Campsite, Bucks Mills. The rugged beauty of this area and the stunning beaches further round the coast towards Saunton and Croyde influence her work greatly.
Esther is inspired by the natural world around her and has the ability to encapsulate form and movement through her use of oils and other mediums resulting in different layers and textures. Esther’s technique evokes an organic feel and engaging depiction of an environment that invites the viewer to reach out and touch it. Esther enjoys walking the local coastline, and moorlands and spending time in her garden which has influenced her to paint beautiful textured paintings. This is an aspect of her work that is unusual and creates something which is very special and unique.
