“I'm in love with PanPastel. The smoothness, the velvety look, I love it.
What surprised me the most is how great you can mix the colors, it is just like mixing paint. And you can get great results with PanPastel on Pastelmat paper, that’s my favorite combination.” - Julia Woning

Our latest Q&A is with New York City based artist Beverly Brown. We wanted to share her beautiful PanPastel paintings and to find out more about her creative process and why she uses PanPastel. Beverly used PanPastel Colors for all of the work shown below.
My grandfather was a painter, illustrator, and professor. I grew up sitting on his lap watching him draw. It fascinated me. I had an amazing (and patient, ha) art teacher in high school that nurtured my abilities and helped me create a portfolio that was awarded several scholarships to major art schools.
