Pamela Shepherd

Our shrunken Covid world of the last two years has forced observation of life at close quarters. Images, objects, environments taken for granted have come into focus. I have become more aware of immediate Hobart city views. An excitement has accompanied developing visual realisations of these using chalk pastels which are new to me. The struggle to make this medium work using imagery foreign to my usual art making endeavours has encouraged positive feelings of achievement. Exploring art making in such circumstances has been redolent of joy born of facing that creative challenge…an antidote to global-dysfunction-induced anxiety.
