I have been painting with Pastels for 10 years. Before that I dabbled in oils, acrylics and pen and ink sketching. Pastels are my love of the four. I have exhibited in numerous shows in Grass Valley, Lakeport, and Grace Hudson Museum in Ukiah. I have been a Pastel instructor at the Main Street Gallery in Lakeport for four years and currently have 10 full time students. We meet every week on Tuesday from 1 to 4 PM. In 2009 and 2010 I was Artist in Residence at the Mclaughlin Nature reserve just off Morgan Valley Road, Lower Lake. This was through UC Davis Cultural Exchange. The paintings in this catalogue are just a few of the vast collection create over the past 5 years.
