Coming from a background in medical illustration, drawing has always been my strength. Pastels afford me the opportunity of drawing and painting at the same time. I am generally wary of brushes; I love the direct involvement of pigment between hand and paper. For me, pastel is the only medium that truly captures and employs the electricity and intensity of color in painting. It is indeed “Magic Dust”! Whatever I choose as subject matter, my focus follows form and color, then line, and always beauty. I believe that beauty is inseparable from power and content; these are important considerations in my work.”
