We are looking forward to an exciting demo from Val Brookes at our WASA General Meeting on Thursday 11th February 2021
Val is a member of the West Australian Society of Arts and past President of the Pastel Society of Western Australia.
She has an art teaching background and continues to run workshops from home, she finds it inspiring to encourage others to explore the joy of creativity.
Much of her subject matter is drawn from travels around Western Australia and she is particularly inspired by our amazing coastline.
Pastels is her preferred medium, being vibrant and immediate and her work focuses on strong contrast between light and shadow.
Val has been painting with pastels for many years and has been highly awarded for her work.
