Hazel Cardew currently works from her studio in Swansea with Elysium gallery. She previously spent time in Japan exploring photography with the Tokyo Digital Artists and has exhibited both in the UK and internationally.

Although I work in a wide range of media, I would describe my practice as drawing based. A strong interest in minimal mark making really drives the work and I enjoy exploring all the ways in which both myself and the viewer can experience these marks. I'm interested in stripping back the visual and allowing the eye to fill in the gaps.
