“I love the lush colors of pastels and the ability to blend them or to leave marks of pure color. I enjoy working with them because they are immediate; there is no pre-mixing as there is with paint, and there is no drying time needed between layers.
Light plays an important role in my pastels because it has a strong effect on my emotions. I love the warmth of natural daylight and the high contrast of values it produces. The interesting abstract shapes that are often created by shadows fascinate me and often become a major part of my compositions.”
