People and places pastel paintings

The series of paintings People and Places originated with my travel photos taken across continents in the countries I visited.The goal of painting in pastel scenes from diverse cultures it is to create frescoes of life with an atmosphere typical to a moment in time. The message of these scenes of life is one of peace and tolerance, respect for different beliefs, different life styles and ethnic diversity.There is a beauty and vibration of life everywhere on earth. The composition of each piece is meant to emphasize the truth, validity, moral values and respect for all religions and ways people choose to adopt in their culture or part of the world they live. My series People and Places is a manifesto of the right we all have to live, work, worship whether that faith is Sufism, Yoruba, Christian Orthodox or Catholic, Hinduism, Agnosticism or Paganism. What better language than that of art for a heartfelt message of peace and harmony among people.

About my work:
Art for me is an expression of my freedom of creating from imagination but also inspired by daily subjects, still life, my travels photographs, the beauty of nature, the human and animal features in portraiture.

Whether is charcoal, watercolor, pastels or colored pencils

each medium is approached by the artist in its unique spirit to convey serenity, beauty, joy of color and shape.

I believe art is a realm of beauty and harmony and art's mission is to inspire meditation, bliss, positive energy, peace.
