I am a Spanish American living in Spain who has been interested for many years in pastels. They are pure pigments of vivid colors that beg to be dragged across the paper and create images.
I am self-taught, and have gradually learned the wonders of these little sticks, that range from hard chalks to buttery soft color. Art has taught me to see the world and its wonders. It has taught me to look for the bird cheerily singing in the bushes, and the elusive color and joy of a cloud-laden day. It has made me more aware of beauty amidst the drabness of daily living.
Welcome and enjoy perusing!
