Judge: Nancy Nowak, PSA, IAPS-EP, AIS


“For me, it’s all about creating. It’s being attuned to the inspiration that nature provides and intuitively, patiently, and creatively, letting go and seeing where that leads. Color and light are what inspire me. It is an ongoing endeavor to capture it artistically yet technically and bring out the spirit of my subjects using the glorious medium of pastels.”
