"Holdiay Show"

MelloDe McCart


My medium is pastels – colored pencils and colored inks combined.  The subjects that I’m drawn to are the innocence of youth, the life stories in an old face and the movement and majesty in nature.  I also mat my own work and make my own frames out of recycled materials.   I customize my frames to enhance the subject in my drawings.
