Soft pastels consist of the purest form of artist pigment combined with just enough binder to allow them to be formed into useable sticks. Pastel paintings are hence luminous with vivid color and incredible texture.

Pastels are the most permanant artist medium if created and protected properly, as the medium cannot crack or yellow.

All the paintings on this website are made on archival quality, acid free support.
