Born between les Landes and les Charentes Hervé Espinosa has been passionate about the wild, open spaces all his life. His first love was the ocean until at 16 he discovered the mountains. Now climber, skier and mountaineer, he is continually exploring the mountains, from which he draws his inspiration.
He is a water colourist who endeavours to re-create his experiences in these far-flung places through meticulous observation of the minutiae of the landscape.
He is a member of the Watercolour French Society, who runs courses and workshops in drawing and water colour painting. He also makes artist’s books.
