Type of art you’re involved in: I enjoy working with soft pastels painting landscapes and seascapes.

How long have you been doing this? I’ve been on and off for the past year.

Town in which you reside: Newton

What do you like about your art? I love painting with pastels because I get to use my fingers to paint and create. whenever im inspired to create something i can easily spend hours with pastels and focus the creativity onto paper.

How did you get started?: I started just by watching someone use pastels, and ever since then, I was able to teach myself how to do it. It’s easy with pastels because you just do it. There are not a bunch of rules to follow or tricks to learn; you just do what comes natural and what flows from you.

Describe a memorable moment from your pursuit of art and/or any schooling and if you have a website: Some of the most fun and memorable times i have drawing or painting is when I’m doing it with friends of mine that are artistes, when we can just relax and have fun, creating things together.
