Though I have used pastels for most of my life, sculpture in glass captures most of my interest and effort. Gestural drawing in charcoal and painting in pastels exercise different muscles and excite other sensibilities.
My interest is to depict in pastels, in a more emotional way than some of my other work, feelings or fantasies, on this journey of mine, and to share them widely.
