"During many years of study, I have had the opportunity to try a variety of media: oil painting, printmaking, ceramics, etc. However, several years ago when I began working with pastels, it felt like coming home. I was seduced by having an array of luscious colors at my fingertips. I loved the immediacy of picking up a piece of color and putting it on the page. I loved the tactile connection I had with the work and began to notice that my own energy and emotions seemed to be coming through." Teresa McCue
