"My goal as a traditional realist painter is to depict, through the beauty of color, certain evocative settings in which the effects of light enhance objects and locations of intrinsic beauty and timeless appeal. Pastel is a wonderful medium for this exploration."

Principally a still life painter, Ms Seymour works exclusively from life, creating scenes that portray a timeless elegance and serenity through her concentration on translucent light and her choice and arrangements of antiques, natural objects, fabrics, flowers and plants, and other materials. She has studied at the Art Students League in New York, the Silvermine Art School in Connecticut, and the Cape Cod School of Art.
