Julie Silvester

"I have been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. As a child I entered numerous art competitions through school and the local community.

I have been painting in watercolours since I was 30 and in 1999 changed to pastels due to their vibrancy, immediacy and the fact there was no drying time!

Water, in all its aspects, has fascinated me for years. I’ve enjoyed painting its reflection, its rapid movement and its overall incorporation with mankind and the coastal landscape.

I go to many locations that interest me and photograph it intensively.

The photographs are my information source for details, the overall experience of being at the actual place helps me to complete the work in my own interpretation.

My art is constantly evolving.

The journey of self expression with paint or pastel is an exciting and fulfilling one for me. Through my artwork I try to capture moments in time and hope these works bring enjoyment spiritually and visually to the viewer as much as it did for me creating them."
