Her paintings often feature observational drawings of places visited such as North Yorkshire, Suffolk and Shropshire, and contain bird or animal motifs on dissolving multi-layers of colour. Harding also draws inspiration from words, describing herself as a ‘narrative illustrator’ as well as a fine artist. In recent years she has made regular contributions as an illustrator for Gardens Illustrated, BBC Countryfile and Country Living Magazine.
Flights of Memory is a collection of new paintings and prints inspired by British birds and animals in their natural landscapes. Harding spent some of her childhood in North Yorkshire and has revisited locations reminiscent of that time for this exhibition to produce works which are observational and also rely on a combination of imagination and memory. Harding’s delicate and intriguing style is further shown through her mainly British bird alphabet, exhibited for the first time at YSP. This features a series of 26 wood engravings that take joy in the shape, form and pattern of our British birds.
