Vibrational energy is the core of life and drives my inspirations. I feel it everywhere. But as my body and lifestyle become quiet and still, so does my work. Reflective moments and details now captivate my visions. I find beauty and importance in the everyday, but always with my unique perspective.
My current process involves painting with soft pastels on PastelMat, a velour-like paper that holds many layers of these wonderful pigments. I use a variety of hard and soft pastels as well as graphite, pencil, and charcoal. I really enjoy creating light and shadow, and painting what I see in all its' fine details. As hard as I've tried I have accepted that I am not what is called a "painterly" painter. I like things neat and clean and staying in the lines.
I also create digital paintings on my iPad using Procreate software. While I have experimented with many styles and brushes, I prefer using soft pastels, oil pastels, and Derwent pencils just like I do with my "real" materials.
