Matthew Haresnape is a Welsh artist now based in Whitchurch Shropshire. Brought up in the village of Acrefair, Matthew was surrounded by the beautiful Welsh landscape of the Dee Valley, which later inspired much of his work.
After studying Art and Design through his school and college years, he then achieved an impressive BA Honours in Illustration in 2011 at Swansea Metropolitan University.
Following his degree, Matthew returned home in North Wales to work. Whilst living back home Matthew met a beautiful woman Amy who is now his wife. They had a beautiful baby boy Oscar in 2015 who they tragically lost after 21 hours old.
After the death of their son Matthew's perspective on life began to change. He left his shift job of 5 years in 2016 with the help and support of his wife Amy, and pursued his dream of owning his own company in honour of his son Oscar.
Matthew and Amy have now been blessed with two beautiful daughters Lola and Lottie and have their country lifestyle they have always dreamed of in the Market Town of Whitchurch with their beautiful family.
Combining his passion for illustration with his love for home decor.....Mad March Hares was born!!
