Artist’s Statement

IMG_1855

My passion is to capture the hidden treasures within the landscape that surround all of us and may go unnoticed in our everyday lives.   The pastel medium allows me to capture the nuances of a subject that has captured my interest. The way the natural light plays across a scene, the intensity or subtleness of the colors within the subject empower me to capture the moment and hopefully intrigue the viewer to explore and feel this fleeting, captured moment in time.
