pastel
16.5 x 18 framed
I have lived in New England most of my adult life. For 25 years I lived in New Hampshire and Vermont and absorbed the velvet mountains, delicate ice and snow and the glorious colors of fall.  Now I have returned to Cape Cod and am surrounded by different light, colors and landscape.  I have begun my exploration here through pastel painting. I don’t have one medium that I prefer. My art is an attempt to create the poetic and visceral emotion that I have in response to nature and my memories of place. I paint with pastels, acrylic and encaustic. I employ mosaic and collage. I layer, break and create.
