Full time job
I go to meet this Canadian goose and baby not so long ago. They shared a swim together, then back to the nest. While mum checked the remaining egg, the baby preened itself. So cute.
Returning to art in 2013 was a choice made to begin my creative desire and outlet was one of the best decisions. Then following a dream to take art up as my career in 2017 was not only liberating to be my own boss but allowing my abilities to grow. As I gain confidence in my craft, I see growth in the studio and in myself.
The choice to use pastels has been an easy one, it’s immediate, on the support with all the mixing done as I go and the mark making is a bonus to have a lively piece of art not to re-create a photo.
To connect with my subject as it develops in front of my eyes. I used to develop my own monochrome photos and it was a thrill to see an image emerging, I find developing my work as I sit at the easel a little like watching my photo creep to the surface. It excites me to see what is at the end.
I love animals from all over the world but I have a soft spot for our Australian wildlife. They are my inspiration.
