Mo Enright was born and raised in the beautiful National Park area of the Hambleton Hills in North Yorkshire. After graduating with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art, went on to gain an MA in the History of Art and is now a full-time professional artist working from Art-E Studios in Warwickshire.
Mo Enright’s paintings invite the viewer into a world of childhood memories and enchanted forests. With refinement and a technical brilliance Enright captures something impossible to translate into words.
Enright’s deep rooted love of nature combines with a masterful painterly technique that results in ‘woodland portraits’. Her trees are not topographical representations of specific woods or forests, more an evocation of a moment in time, a memory. Working in her studio from copious sketches and notes made whilst out walking Enright strives to create a sense of place; she recaptures on canvas the experience of being in nature.
