A Signature Pastelist with the Pastel Society of the West Coast, Tonya L. Carpenter’s work has appeared in The Pastel Journal and acknowledged in numerous exhibitions across the USA, France and Slovenia.

Carpenter’s core subjects are portraits and landscapes. Her travels throughout the United States, Canada, Japan and Europe provide ample inspiration for her studio and plein air work. She strives to distill the evocative feelings and atmospheric conditions of ordinary people and places to form a nuanced image. The versatility of pastels are great travelng companions while chasing a fleeting look and the impermanence of light.

Pastels more than suit my style of working a range of approaches from freely-sketched almost abstracts to tightly-rendered passages.
