Tricia saya 'The beauty and serenity of creation is what draws me to paint. I love to capture the feel of the moment whether that is the warmth of the light, the velvet feel of a petal or the fold of a cloth. As a seascape artist I enjoy capturing the movement of the waves and the play of light on the sand. There is something quite spiritual and musical in the ocean. It is the light, the rhythm and the emotion that entices me to paint no matter what the subject. I am a Master Pastellist with the Pastel Society of Australia since 2010. The way the pastel becomes your brush and the paper your pallet is immediate and exciting to paint with. The subtle colour effects you can gain by glazing one colour over another gives a great depth to the artwork. I have won awards in the areas of flower, still life, portraits, landscapes and seascapes. However seascapes are my passion. My artwork can be seen at Seaview Gallery Moffat Beach Queensland 7 days a week. Being on duty at the gallery twice a month feel free to drop in and have a chat!'
