I started as a beginner with a pastel artist teacher, Rebecca de Mendonca, in Ewell in 2010.  I had never painted before although as a child I drew horses on everything!  My interest now are my grand children, horses and ballet dancers.  However, portraits are my favourite and my 5 grandchildren have all been drawn in pastels at some time or another in the last 4 years. 

I am now experimenting a little with acrylics which I find quite different to pastels as it is painting rather than drawing.  I don't think I will ever give up my pastels and I just love their vibrant colours.
