Hello, I am a 58 year old with a passion for art; love to paint outside as well as in, and in Pastels.
Why pastels, they feel right for me and the way I work, the subtle use of colour flowing over the sheet to form a beautiful flower or landscape, trying to recreate sunlight drifting through clouds or leaves glistening in morning dew.
Pan pastels seem to have glued themselves to me as they are so much fun to use and can give a glorious painterly effect, I feel as though I have just begun to explore this medium with its many facets.
I would add that I enjoy all sorts of different subject matter, from Landscapes to flowers and insects; I love clouds and the way they create almost paintings in the sky with sunlight pushing its way through.
Happiness for me is out and about with my easel looking for that perfect place to paint and enjoy the music of animals. Plein air painting during spring and summer is so relaxing, don’t forget to stop and say hello out on your own adventures, I love to meet you and have a chat.
