Artist Profile - Julie Silvester

I paint mainly with pastels – being a dry medium it allows me to work spontaneously without waiting for paint to dry. Over the last few years I have enjoyed pushing this medium to its boundaries. Applying various textures and techniques to the painting surface before overlaying with the pastels to add another dimension to my work.
I have always enjoyed using the coast as a means of getting inspiration for my work. Its light and colour, its movement and ever-changing moods has given me an endless supply of subject matter. In the past five years I have explored more inland areas of Western Australia and the amazing array of salt lakes and estuaries that Western Australia has to offer.
I have been exhibiting throughout Western Australia in open and invitation only art exhibitions since 1992. Within this time, I have received over 100 awards throughout the state.
