I was born with a pencil in my hand, or so it seems. Line, to me, is form. The possibilities, endless.

Works are on pastel board. They are presented framed, spaced behind museum glass. 
OIL PASTELSMy approach to oil pastel is one of exploration and discovery. This medium offers versatility and diversity of technique and substrate. These works are a powerful, yet looser interpretation of my figurative imagery.
Current works are on aluminum. Each piece has a high gloss resin finish and are presented framed.
