Guanella Pass, Pastel

As an artist, I am most interested in the vibrant combination of colors, shapes and line. I try to reflect these in my artwork. I love the medium of soft pastel, because of it allows me to convey what I see onto my surface with luminosity and brilliancy.

I am particularly inspired by Southwestern landscapes, having grown up in Arizona, and now living in the gorgeous outdoors of Colorado. I also love depicting objects relating to my childhood: Carousel horses and dolls that bring back fond memories, as well as the strong colors and shapes of old cars and trucks.

My desire is to create paintings that are bold and different, inviting the viewers to see things in a different, unique way.
