After painting acrylic for the last six years, a friend introduced me to The Wisconsin Pastel Artists group. I found through my use of pastels I could convey my "feeling" of a moment much more easily than with acrylic. I so enjoy the ease of taking my pastels where ever I go and doing some Plein Air Painting at a moments notice.
I have a small summer cabin in the "Driftless Region" of Wisconsin and draw my inspiration from the high ridge tops and the sleepy valleys of the area. An area of countless vistas of natural beauty.
