I am a very tactile person, in love with my sense of touch. The beginning years of my career as an artist, I practice sculpture (stone carving and bronze). I love the feeling of getting my hands dirty and immersed in the feeling of the materials. The feeling of the silky soft pastels is an enjoyable experience, not to mention the way that they blend together like a cream. I build many, many layers of this magic powders to create a luminous and sumptuous surface.
