Sheila Goodman PS SWA

Artist's Statement:

Having painted in oils from childhood, I discovered pastels as a sketching medium in the 1980s and quickly found an affinity with them. Within a few years I was exhibiting pastel paintings in both local and London galleries. They remain my first medium although I enjoy occasionally using oils, acrylics and collage.
Landscape subjects that appeal to me concern water, trees, beaches or townscapes which I hope to capture through the use of expressive colour.
