Working in pastel since 1998, I have learned that pastel is a misunderstood and mysterious medium. I want to show the beauty and versatility of this very old medium. Pastel is an opaque medium, so I focus on working in layers of transparency to layers of opacity.
I enjoy painting the landscape. The way the light interacts with the landscape captures my attention. I want to take my viewer to a place of beauty, a place where he might wonder, “what lies beyond?” A place where the viewer can dream.
And in order to meet my customer requests for giclees and prints, I have decided to make them available as well. But I wanted to do a little more than just have my paintings printed on canvas, and so I started a series of that were intended to be printed.
