I have been painting on and off since about 2009. I dabbled for a while with different media but I fell in love with Pastels. I like to work quickly while I feel inspired, and pastels allow that. My landscapes have been described as “Impressionistic Realism”. Not sure how the likes of Monet and Cezanne would feel about that, but I quite like it. I guess it means people can recognise the place that I am painting without needing to be told where it is. Most of my landscapes are inspired by the landscapes of North Wales.
I also love to paint animals in pastels, and have done several pet portraits for friends and neighbours. My style is more realsistic when it comes to animals as I love doing the details of fur and feathers.
My website is at www.stellawilcox.co.uk . It does need updating so please bare with me while I get it updated.
