Born in Preston, Lancashire, in the North of England, Constance Regardsoe is an emerging artist who has always been passionate about making art. However, as the first person in her family to attend university, she was encouraged to pursue a more traditional profession. After earning her English degree, she moved to London and began a career in education, but she soon realized the persistence and power of her passion for painting. She soon switched to teaching part-time, allowing her to devote more time to making her art. Throughout 2020, she was selected for several major exhibitions and won the prestigious Bath Society of Arts Grand Prize and Young Artist Prize - the first time in the competition's 115-year history that a recipient has won both awards. She has since switched to focusing on painting full-time. She is inspired by the visual spectacles captured in her source images and her respect and admiration for her models. Constance chooses to depict bodies of water, which present an opportunity to capture the many abstractions created by movement and light refraction. They remind us that time is fleeting and the world is ever-changing. The beauty of this moment will soon be gone, and we are well advised to appreciate the present moment.
