Among the pastels I will be showing at Goujoun’art, 5th biannual art event, are several new pieces in a series entitled ‘States of Mind’. In these works I have mixed pastel with collage, ink and other water-based paints, to add texture and to break up the surface. It is not the people themselves that I see as the subjects of these works, but rather the atmosphere that surrounds them, using colour in order to emphasise a particular emotional state.
