Beautiful Traditional Art using Pastel


One of the wondrous aspects of our lives is the ability to discover new things about ourselves, even later in life. I "found" my art in my second half century - what an amazing gift to discover!


I am influenced by classical and traditional art masters who were able to translate the world onto canvas and paper.  But I seek to go beyond the mere image and capture the essence and personality of the subject, whether that be a child, or favorite pet, or memorial portrait.
