ARTIST
It has always been one of my passions to have my art shown at a gallery or in a magazine, to give patrons a chance to see my artwork and if for a moment while looking at my work they can escape to places off the beaten path and enjoy.  This is my challenge for the present, I've taken photographs for many years, and have put them on a hard drive to easily view them. Now finally I have found my own photographic images that are worthy to be my voice to the ART WORLD!

100% COLOR PENCIL?
All my art pieces that I draw for the Color Pencil Society of America are 100% color pencils. I must say I enjoy using Prismacolor Soft Core pencils on all my art projects, I always get the desired results I need. When asked if I use solvents to blend my colors, I reply no! When asked if I have found something new to blend my colors and still create lots of layers, I say Yes! I have started to use the Icarus Board designed by a fellow CP artist Ester Roi. But who knows one day I may venture out of my comfort zone and use other tools.
