KAY MOORE

 

I am largely self-taught although I do have a pet portrait diploma.  I have always painted from a child but never had the courage to pursue my love of art until recently.  After working full-time for 27 years and then having the opportunity to do some travelling with my husband I decided the time was right to do what I love - paint and be more creative!

 

My work is varied and I work in many different styles using pastels, oils, acrylics and mixed media.  Different mediums allow me to express different ideas but pastels will always be my first love. 

 

I am inspired by colour, my paintings are vibrant and colourful.  Colours mimic a time or a place and you will often be drawn to a painting by just its colour.  I started with watercolours but when I discovered pastels, I knew they were for me!  I love their spontaneous approach.  Pastel does not refer to pale colours.  I use a mixture of top quality soft and hard pastels; soft pastels have a very high concentration of pigment, which is held together by a small amount of binder.  Their fragile consistency and powdery texture makes them well suited to blending and layering on lots of colour.  Their colours are wonderfully intense. 

 

Using vibrant colours I inject energy and movement into my paintings.
