Artist Notes

The quality of the black and white drawings is achieved by using black pastel on vellum in an additive/reductive process. The surface is both slick and clean, yet has a remarkable amount of tooth to push the material around on and carve out the image.

The pastel paintings are on surfaces that provide a substantial texture to allow and hold a many layered velvety bloom. These pieces will not be sprayed. It is recommended that they be matted with a double layer mat incorporating a trough or including a spacer prior to framing.

It is my desire to capture the nature and spirit of the subject. The essence - a soulful gaze, a twitched up ear, the energetic hovering of a hummingbird activating its space, to quiet light.
