The Artist Nature ~ trees, open fields, cloud-filled skies, and the ocean inspire my pastel drawings. Each drawing begins with a quick sketch, and later the lines are filled-in with color. The color and lines are blended together, destroying the form, and then the edges are brought back.

Much of my joy as an artist comes from sharing my work with others. Viewers are drawn to my work because there has been a point of intersection in our lives. In one brief moment, there is an inner acknowledgment that we saw or experienced something in a similar way. The work reconnects us to that moment.~ Libby George
