Sheryn’s Pastel Projects

About Me

Sheryn Wareing


South Australia






My day job is rather a fun one - working with my husband, David, to create games for Apple Mac computers. But sometimes I like to get my hands ‘dirty’ which is why I joined the Union Street Studios art group in 2006.

The Studio is based in Stepney, South Australia and run by Renate Nisi. We meet for 3 hours once a week to learn, practice and chat.

Over the years we’ve had a go at most things from painting to limestone carving. Drawing with the hard, chalk-like Conte pastels on paper has become one of my favourite techniques.

I began with an unused set of 12 pastels that I happened to have in my cupboard from college days. (I went to Design School and had no resistance to all the papers, water-colour paints and special pens to be found at the campus shop).
