Pastel on Matte Board
I exuberantly create vibrantly colored pastels inspired by the natural world. Art is like walking a path through the woods, where I don’t know where I will wind up. But the path is thrilling. It instills within me the confidence to set and push through my own boundaries. As someone suffering from a chronic pain condition, and also cares and manages care for my disabled mother who resides with my family, it isn’t easy to stay energetic or feel nourished. But getting lost and found within color is helpful.
