How Trees And Local Landscapes Inspire Shaftesbury Artist Richard Hoare

Artist Richard Hoare has lived in Shaftesbury since 1994. He’s travelled the world with his art but North Dorset remains his home.

Richard is inspired by our ancient landscapes. He tells us how he captures the spirit of our nature and, in particular, our trees.
