Artist Statement

 

I am a Colorado artist working primarily in soft pastel.

Real-world subject matter is my starting point. I look for the things that make me laugh, do a double take or fascinate me because of their beauty. My subject may be as complex as a landscape or as simple as a single piece of fruit. I use composition, color and technique to communicate the meaning and emotions that attracted me and hope that I create a memorable visual experience for the viewer.

You may contact me by e-mail, sjmarvinart@yahoo.com or by phone, (720) 938-6914, regarding availability, pricing or commissions.
