I've used pastels for many years, along with just about every other medium. I'm not a professional artist, but have sold hundreds of works, including cards and cartoons. I've been published in newspapers and magazines. I've sold by commission, in exhibitions and competitions. I currently upload art into a couple of international sites, mainly for comments by like-minded people and at a ripe old age now, I'm tapering off and simply enjoying doing what I do and looking over works of others. I am also into jewellery, cutting, polishing and setting stones...mainly goold, old Australian opals.
