Bright & Beautiful: Artwork by Keren Dibbens-Wyatt.
My passion is working in pastels, and my inspiration comes largely from nature and from the personality of my subjects, my favourites being portraiture, wildlife and seascapes, though I'll happily paint "all things!" I describe my style as “Realism with a hint of magic,” loving the challenge of capturing something of a soul on paper, and am constantly amazed by the range of colours to be found in the most unlikely places.
As a disabled person, I use my art to bring the outdoors inside and work with a range of photographers to inspire my pictures. My Christian faith is a constant encouragement and leads me to create joyful encounters with my subjects. I am keen to constantly learn and improve, and am building my portfolio having been tutored online at Heather Harman’s Pastel Academy after winning a year’s scholarship in a competition sponsored by Unison Colour Pastels.
