Autumn Quartet

This piece is pastel on paper, part of a series exploring motherhood. I love pastel but like many mediums it can be scary. In art school I inhaled and absorbed far too many toxic ingredients. Now, I am very careful. When I moved to Shoreline and set up my studio in the basement, I stopped using pastels. I felt it would be too difficult to keep it out of living areas. My favorite mediums are pastel and lithography, both of which I no longer use.


  1. I like this piece very much. It's a shame you can't find a way to work with the mediums you love best. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks Sara. Someday in a perfect world I will have a studio not in a basement, not in my house and with proper ventilation.
