I have always had a strong passion for art, both in experiencing other’s work and in experimenting on my own. Art creation is a process that allows me to transform what I literally see into what my inner self sees. I’m very attracted to color and contrasting textures and I especially love collage, watercolor and pastel. My contribution to this particular image is a combination of watercolor and pastel. Watercolor gives the subtle background hue where the pastels are gorgeous tinctures on the surface. It’s fun to smudge and push and blend the two mediums.
