Artist's statement:

I came to pastels as a young man working in Canada alongside man doing wonderful free illustrations of the project we were working on and have used them ever since for both work and pleasure. I note that my work has gone from loose to tightly graphic recently.


Exhibitions:

Mainly Pastel Society exhibitions, art festivals and open studio exhibitions.


Method of working:

I use pastels rather like watercolour artists - by creating a pallet of colour and dipping into I using tissue paper and hands to apply the pastel. I use paper masks, all the time, rather like a screenprinter lays on different areas of colour. I love the blank sheet of card or paper and not knowing what I will end up with. I make thumbnail sketches or more recently use photos for reference.
