Nel Whatmore lives and works in Tadcaster, North Yorkshire. She is a fine artist, who works predominantly in pastel and oil, and is also the joint founder of The New Pastel School.
As a contemporary colourist her paintings are both expressionist and evocative. Her main interest is in colour and light and it’s effect on our emotions. She has a great love of flowers and is a regular exhibitor at Chelsea Flower Show where her stand has won multiple awards.
She has been commissioned to paint the national Collection of Michaelmas Daisies, at the Picton Garden in Malvern and The National Collection of the Rose. She has just finished a year-long residency at RHS Harlow Carr Gardens, Harrogate, which culminated in the‘ A Year in the Garden” Exhibition. She became a professional artist over 32 years ago with the help of the Prince’s Youth Business Trust.
As well as painting nature Nel loves painting abstracts and her most recent multimedia abstracts focusing on conveying uplifting emotions have met with particular acclaim.
