Have you ever drawn with chalk on the sidewalk, creating new, colorful worlds for people to enjoy and appreciate? I’ve always loved encountering them out in the wild. They are so playful and a breath of color in the world that I find most refreshing. I love the ease that comes with pastels, and I love to use highly pigmented, lush pastels to create these pictures. Again, each one of these is a personal story for someone; a glimpse into the inner world of their own picture book. I do so love art that tells a story!
