 I was introduced to pastels and velour paper 25 years ago, I fell in love! I especially enjoy realism and painting animals. This medium makes the animals come alive and allows me to achieve a lot of precise detail. The majority of my work are commissioned pets.

I am a retired illustrator/designer/teacher who is rediscovering my passion for painting. I love all different media because they each suit a different mood or style; but the spontaneity and expressiveness that can be achieved with pastel is exciting. I enjoy painting wildlife and landscapes the most and hope to do more plein air painting in the future.


Pat Gombarcik


Retired from a long and enjoyable career in high school science education and administration, I am very involved in painting landscapes in the studio I had built in my backyard and plein air painting around the state of NY and in my travels out west. I am a member of the Pastel Society of Western New York, the Rochester Art Club, and the Genesee Valley Plein Air Painters for personal growth and the camaraderie of other artists. As a current member of the Red Rock Pastel Society of Nevada, I hope to join you someday to paint in the beautiful parks of Red Rock Canyon and Fire Valley where I recently visited.

 I always liked to draw, mostly with a graphite pencil. It was mainly fashion sketches  (I was even thinking to pursue a career in fashion design but it never happened  :) ) and occasionally portraits. Being in the college I had an opportunity to take an  acrylic painting class which I liked a lot. Few years later I singed up for watercolor and drawing classes (both online and offline) and then finally tried a pastel medium. Nowadays I am  mostly focused on two media - pastel and watercolor and want to improve my technique in both. 

I am happy to be a part of this pastel community and looking forward to learn from it as well as to contribute to it as much as I can

Thank you for your interest in my work.  I love painting everything from landscapes to people and love the challenge of capturing the essence of the piece.  I work in soft pastels because I love working with pure pigment and exploring all the different textures that pastels provide. I am available for commissioned work and would love to talk about what you might want.


My work has been accepted into and won awards at various national art shows.  I am a member of the Colorado Pastel Society and the Pastel Society of New Mexico.

"I have been painting in pastels off and on my entire adult life, only more seriously the past decade. A staff accountant by day, I recognized no creative opportunities in accounting, hence my art outlet. I've juried into local shows as well as the Maryland Pastel Society Expressions in Pastel after being fortunate enough to have studied under Jocelynn Tice, as well as many workshops with Stan Sperlak and his visiting guest artists. 


Primarily a landscape and figure painter, I am eagerly awaiting my relocation to Nevada from NJ, where the western light and landscapes are eagerly anticipated."

The last 2.5 years has been fascinated by pastels.

Amazing technique, the use of pure pigment in pastels gives a velvet effect, and it is simply fascinating.

 The majority of my works are landscapes, wildlife, pets and botany.

 I prefer to work in the technique of realism or in the expressive manner...

 It is a special pleasure to watch how work comes to life under your hand, a soul appears, especially it concerns animalistics.


For me  painting is a kind of meditation, art therapy, I fully immerse myself in the creative process.

Cindy Gillett is an Idaho artist who paints with soft pastels and oils. Her focus is primarily on intimate scenes, where she emphasizes the individual qualities that make a person, place or thing uniquely its own whether it be the quality of light, reflections, atmospheric effect on the subject matter or simply its unique physical attributes.  Her work can be viewed at:

Cindy Grossman, Taos, NM, began studying drawing in 2012 with pastel artist Kathleen Smith, also of Taos, New Mexico. After a year, while still under Ms. Smith’s tutelage, she started using pastels and it has evolved into a delightfully challenging, but extremely gratifying passion.
She is currently part of an exhibit with The Taos Pastel Group at the Blumenschein Home and Museum, Taos.  She will be exhibiting other works beginning July 5, 2019, through October with the same group at the annual art show held at Hillcrest Bank of Taos, northern branch.
She continues her study and exploration of this medium and since 2014, has taken various classes and workshops with other pastel artists, through Dakota Pastels and as an attendee at the biennial IAPS convention, held in Albuquerque, NM.
