“I chose working in pastel's back in the late 80s as a means to loosen up from a photo realistic style. Specifically I worked in oils and my subject was the human figure. Like many I wanted to see just how realistic I could draw or paint. When I had achieve my goal I realized a need to become  more expressive, more painterly as it were, to develop my own artistic identity. I needed a change and a challenge and pastels proved to be the medium I was looking for. Being self-taught, I had no constraints on the perceived limits of the Medium. I found pastels lent themselves perfectly to a loose drawing style, allowing me to add a sense of life and motion to the image.”
