My medium concentration has been in Soft Pastels over the last seven years. My Niche is the everyday working people and figurative subjects. My Favorief pastel supplies are Color Fix paper which has a sandy surface and Schmincke pastels for their buttery consistency and vibrancy. Using a layering technique with an occasional fixative spray, allows my work to look more dimensional, with a photo realism appearance. My inspiration comes from the subjects. I consider the angle of view for the composition and look for a dramatic lighting source to inhance the positive and negative space.
