Artist Bio: Nancy Rickard. I am new to the art world, having picked up pastels less than two years ago and I have not put them down yet. I have always loved color, so pastels give me that opportunity to express myself through color. I paint exclusively with soft pastels, and I'm mostly self-taught. I am a member of the Representational Art League and various Pastel Societies. I prefer to paint out on the landscape, although I do have a studio shared with my painting and life partner Paul Rickard.
