artist statement

My intention is to bring Pastel paintings to life for Nova Scotians.  Soft pastel applied to Sennelier sanded paper brings vivid colour to life for most seascapes of Nova Scotia.  I can only hope that viewers can see and feel what I felt.

    Hello Rae:
    I met you a few weeks ago when I came to Secret Cove with my husband, I left you a pamphlet with our contact info. regarding us wanting to purchase a place in Secret Cove. I was wondering if you wouldn’t mind giving me contact information for the lady who lives up the hill from you??
    It seems like she might be the only one who could be thinking of selling.
    Thanks very much,
