In 2015 she attended a week long masterclass in Ballinglen Arts Foundation with the Dutch artist Arno Kramer. There she focused on contemporary drawing.

She also won the F15 & AIB People’s Choice Award at the Foundation 15 Arts Festival in Tullamore and recently received a prize at Impressions Book Art 2016 exhibition in Galway.
Having focused on graphite drawing and installation for awhile she is excited to return to printmaking. Hazel enjoys all print process however, etching, aquatint, and blind emboss are her preferred techniques. Hazels aim for the coming months is to research and create a new body of graphite drawings.
