I set out to rejuvenate my art interests in 2009, when physical set backs limited much my other activity. My passion for art has carried through in the past as an illustrator and photographer. Due to physical limitations I found a happy medium in pastels, a medium I could work spontaneously yet allow me to walk away from a project with no repercussions.
I have focused on subject matter not only familiar to me, but feeling of close relationship to, that being wildlife, landscape while occasionally dabbling in portraiture. I am constantly experimenting with technique and feel my style is evolving over time.
When I am not at my easel painting I spend time teaching pastel and composition.
