The beauty and serenity of creation is what draws me to paint. I love to get the feel of the moment whether that is the warmth of the light, the velvet feel of a petal or the fold of a cloth. As a seascape artist I enjoy capturing the movement of the waves and the play of light on the sand. There is something quite spiritual and musical in the ocean. It is the light, the rhythm and the emotion that entices me to paint no matter what the subject.
The way the pastel becomes your brush and the paper your pallet is immediate and exciting to paint with. The subtle colour effects you can gain by glazing one colour over another gives a great depth to the artwork. As a Master Pastellist I have the ability to paint any subject from seascape and still life to portraits and figures. Oils are also on my list of painting medium that I love. Large format impressionism and impasto work are my joy.
