Pastels combine everything I love about making art: intense, saturated colors; textural variety depending upon the paper that is used; a medium that I can put my hands in direct contact with (probably a holdover from my fingerpainting days!), and the opportunity to correct mistakes and move things around in a painting by adding more layers.

I enjoy painting a variety of subjects from landscapes to still life to life drawings and portraits. I usually paint from photographs, and I think it’s the colors and the composition that I see in the image which determines what my next painting will be.
