I am a pastel painter. I chose this medium because of its immediacy and lightness. Pastel allows you freedom to build a richness of color in a single sitting that I did not find in any other kind of painting. It is the purest pigment in a soft medium that can still give you hard edges while maintaining its beautiful fluidity of expression.

"Microcosm" (5" x 7")
My muse has always been the water and all the little "worlds" that are supported in the surrounding environments like the marshes, the beaches and the underwater kingdom. This painting is a microcosm of all those things that call to me and my pastels: the salt tide, the colorful marsh grasses and the myriad creatures that live within.
