Tricia Reust is a Master Pastellist with the Pastel Society of Australia and has become adept in recycling old pastel works. The excitement of producing completely new surfaces for pastel from old paintings never ceases to thrill, and with our poor old world needing more than ever a reduction in waste, the techniques and methods to successfully achieve this deserve to be proclaimed!
Tricia rarely works on a plain paper surface. She prefers to start the story with underpaintings, texture and collage which necessitates the exploration of mediums and techniques good enough to present work of the highest archival standard.
Tricia often uses pastel on her canvas works, in portraits and mixed media. Tricia has established a relationship with Australian art materials manufacturers in order to maintain a working knowledge of products, enabling her to present work of the highest archival standard.
