"I've loved art since I was a child and won my first drawing contest at age twelve.
Although I studied to be an oil painter, when I began working with soft pastels in 1999, I fell in love with their radiant color. I became a student of full-color seeing, attending classes with artist Susan Sarback at The School of Light and Color in Fair Oaks, California. My other art instruction includes Ecole des Beaux Arts, Paris, France, Boston University's School of Fine Art; and classes with the late Henry Hensche of the Cape Cod School of Art.
Since then I've gone on to teach full-color seeing and painting with soft pastels at several locations in the U.S. My paintings are in an Impressionist style where I suggest shapes, distance, and atmosphere via the quality of light. And much of this work informs my writing and sense of well-being. In fact, when I was diagnosed and treated for breast cancer in 1999, art was an important part of my healing process. My painting 'Summer Light' was chosen for a special breast-cancer awareness calendar by Amoena Corporation." — Mary Carroll Moore
