Description Being a mother is such a wonderful feeling. Nurturing our young boys can be seen as making them weak or dependent, but in my experience it is the opposite of the truth. Loving care is so important and I wanted to express the feeling I had in raising my son.
Crystal Gates, Eagle Point Member Since July 2009 Artist Statement I have always loved to make art. There is something very fulfilling in creating something new and expressing my inner being in connection to nature. I find that working spontaneously allows me to avoid over thinking. This is why I love working with pastels. To really channel my creativity I need to work within that space of the present moment. Once thinking comes into it becomes forced and unnatural. Currently I have been teaching drawing and watercolor classes and creating art whenever I can. It is a joy to share my art with others. Thanks for your interest.
