Imogen moved to Cornwall to study at Falmouth College of Arts where she subsequently fell in love with the rhythm that life and what the landscape in the South West offers.

During her time living on the Isles of Scilly, she started to explore what it means to belong to a location and the synergy between man and land. This response to the environment resulted in her developing a visual language through painting and something she wishes to investigate in different localities.

Her work is starting to split into two complementary streams, one being the immediate response to landscape documented through onsite sketches and paintings. The other is a confluence of that stream with memories, energy, and narrative leading to studio-based work that explores a deeper connection to the elements. How the landscape is read visually interests her, contradicting perceptions of scale, small spaces looking out to vast areas, and the balance of separation and connectivity of earth, sea, and sky.

Alongside being absorbed in her own work Imogen is a tutor at Newlyn School of Art where she teaches a painting 'en Plein Air'.
