Nietzsche thinks of art as the very founding experience of life.
Elsa Hunt takes her inspiration from the everyday environment surrounding her.
While at university her work was about domestic settings, traces of family life and the objects that we surround ourselves with.
At the moment it’s her love of colour and flowers that take centre stage.
The artist works predominantly in acrylic but collage and mixed media can also play a part.
Her love of art also extends to others and she volunteers at The Arthouse Meath in Godalming Surrey, a social enterprise where adults who suffer from epilepsy and varying degrees of disability and learning difficulties produce art.
Their work is then turned into products that are sold worldwide.
Here she helps with art sessions, running the shop and packing up products for online and retail sales.
All profits are then used to support the artists.
She finds the clients a huge source of inspiration.
Elsa Hunts BA in fine art was taken at UCA Farnham where she juggled her degree with looking after her husband and 3 children.
