1. A favorite medium

It was a while in coming; my passion for colored pencil. Quite a while, actually. I discovered recently that I first bought a Bernard Poulin colored pencil book in the 90's. Entranced by his deep colors, colors I had never seen in the weak anemic colored pencils from grade school. I proceeded to examine Prismacolor pencils and was smitten. Thankfully there are artists such as Ann Kullberg, who generously share their talents through online (and now print colored pencil magazines) as well as workshops.
 Little Emma,(see above) was shown in a 2005 FMP (From My Perspective, and online magazine colored pencil show). Emma is a sweet little cairn terrier belonging to my niece. She was rendered on tinted paper with Prismacolor pencils, one of my earliest attempts. 
I am now delighted to be associated with Greeting Card Universe and am accepting clients for colored pencil portraiture. An exciting venture to be sure.
