I am self taught, starting with charcoal drawing 40 or so years ago. That has evolved into the pastel work I do now.
Always one to get my hands dirty, pastel painting is perfect for me. I might add also, pastel is a very forgiving medium.Over the years I have experimented with several subjects; from wildlife to still life, from landscapes to outer space, and various other tangents.
I love contrast. I love the way light can manipulate mood, destroy darkness, and inspire imagination. Light is a main component in most of my work.
Painting challenges me and I'm always looking for a new challenge. Viewing things in a different light facilitates the creative process. I truly enjoy doing this and look forward to retiring from my “day job” so I can spend more time pursuing pastel painting.
