Artwork Details & Purchase » Aspire, 24x36 oil painting


The pure joy of creating a piece of art from a blank sheet of paper is my passion, and I hope you will enjoy these pastels as much as I did when painting them.

I am a seeker of the peaceful moment, an unspoiled sandy beach, a quiet walk in the woods. The closer look at a beautiful bloom inspires me to translate the folding shades of color, to stop time forever, on paper. The pastel medium is an immediate pleasure to an impulsive artist.

I am an ex-New Yorker who moved to Kauai in the early 80's, with my camera, flute and oil box, unsure of my future but ready for a change. Since then Iíve had a family, played many gigs, and discovered pastels! I belong to several Pastel societies and art guilds, exhibit in juried shows and paint "en plein air" as much as I can. The pursuit of excellence in pastel is a continuing journey that I would like to share with you.
