Artist’s Statement

An award winning oil painter,  Pearse applies oil paint and acrylic textures as an exploratory means of expression of intuition and experimentation, layering and scraping off, and a build up and overlap of successive stages. This process creates vibrant currents of color, light, and reflection in transitional coastal compositions.

A long-time Naples resident, Pearse is an active member in the Naples art community. Over the last 20 years, her work has been featured in local galleries and art shows as well as in the book, Artists in Their Studios, by Ruth Dwyer. Her most recent honor includes receiving the Award of Distinction at the Naples National Art Festival.
