Pearl is an award-winning studio and plein air painter. What pulls her into a work of art is the effect of light and shadow, variety in shapes and edges, and the raw feeling of an expressive piece. She enjoys loose brushwork and the wealth of opportunity that opens up when painting in true light. Her goal is to beautifully render a suggestion, a thought, or an idea, and capture what is fleeting and temporary in everyday life - typically scenes in nature - in her chosen medium of oils.
What she is striving for now is variety in subject matter and composition, experimenting with key and temperature relationships, and creating a sense of rhythm within her work. She continues to paint at juried plein air events along the east coast and lives in Midlothian, Virginia with her goldendoodle, Sascha.
