As a young art student in my teens, I studied pastels and portraiture with Guy Bernardo of San Diego. After a 25 year detour into architectural rendering, I finally returned to my first love, painting people and animals. Painting in pastel is especially satisfying to me, since it allows me to use my fingers to manipulate the painting directly. More recently, after studying oils with Behrouz Mirdadian of San Anselmo, I divide my time now between the two, sometimes creating a painting first in pastel and then in oil, to explore the differences.
