Halla Shafey PSA PS IAPS (MC)

Influenced by her love of the natural world, Halla’s pastel paintings are based on her observations of the ‘greater universe, her dreams and meditations’. Striving to revolutionise the application of soft pastels, Halla often integrates her pastels with various other mediums, challenging the classical representational style typically found within pastel works, to an expressionistic abstract style. Her work is known for it’s rich colours and dense textures, with many of her paintings reflecting humanitarian and development issues that are of concern to her, including women and children’s rights.
