Career[edit | edit source]

Coomber's work is created en plein air, often using using mixed media - such as glitter, gold leaf, pigments and paint[8][self-published source?] - to depict subjects like wild hedgerows, tangled meadows, open moorlands and dense forests.[9] She uses paintbrushes, sponges, rags, palette knives and her fingers.[citation needed] Her influences include impressionism, abstract expressionism and colour field painting.
