SPECIALTY: ✔ Technique
My goal in my art is to unveil the essence of light.
Light has always fascinated me. It has so many meanings and significance in life. Bringing clarity, hope and unveiling our path. With art as the vehicle, I tell the story of light whether it is the hope of a sunrise, the light falling on a child’s face or the path of light as it falls on a velvet petal.
I aim to share the light of God and is revealed in creation to bring just a little more joy.
Working in both oils and pastels it is the pastels that give me the most joy to teach. The way the pastel becomes your brush and the paper your pallet is immediate and exciting to paint with.
Watching students grow as they understand how to use this amazing medium is my passion. The subtle colour affects you can gain by glazing one colour over another gives a great depth to the artwork.
