Abstract, landscape & portrait acrylic & oil pastel paintings, with small items. Inspired by the natural world around us.
I only started acrylic pouring in the first lockdown and loved escaping into this world of colour. It has taken me out of my safety zone of pastel portraits and oil painting. Acrylic pouring is always an exciting journey into the unknown as there are so many variables that can affect the final outcome. The final step involves praying to the Drying Gods, on a regular basis, to be kind! Recently I have started experimenting with oil pastels, which combine my love of soft pastels and oils, and I love the different effects that can be created. Art has always been very important to me as a way to relax from working in the health care profession; a way to switch off completely especially in the difficult time we have all been going through.
