He lived in Paris for some time, where he gained the confidence and ability which makes his work quite outstanding amongst his contemporaries.

The influence of many West Country artists and the surroundings of his youth have provoked his unique style, with his use of soft bright colours evoking a serene atmosphere in his landscapes, reminiscent of the Wessex artist Thomas Hardy.

Edward Hersey, a most gifted artist, has in the last decade, established  himself as the foremost artist in his field. His meticulous attention to every detail, and his rare ability to captivate his audience with his fabulous record of mood and lighting, elevate him into a league of the select few.

Hersey’s formative years were spent living in southern England, with its rich and varied landscape and abundant farm buildings, which has inspired him throughout his artistic career.

New and interesting subjects encourage him to travel extensively throughout the U.K. to record the style and variation in farm buildings, the source of much of his work.
