Born in 1973, Esther Tyson was brought up in a small town at the edge of the Lake District, Cumbria. She currently lives and works in South Wales. Esther studied at Carlisle college of Art and Design, Carmarthenshire college of Technology and Art and then Londons Royal College of Art. Esther has exhibited widely in the UK and her work has also earned acclaim in London where she was short listed for the Prestigious Hunting Art Prizes earlier this year.

Esther is a painter whose work reflects her deep feeling for the natural world, without being sentimental. Painting from life, she seeks to capture the essence of her subject. Her painting is a response to the smell, sights and sounds. It emerges from her reactions, feelings and thoughts toward both her subject and the marks she makes.

For a moment out into the open, a 100 yards before crossing our path to continue winding through the forest. Ahead a hut for storage, of food? As I approach I found the wood splintered with claw marks,six feet high..."
