Nancy L.Yang President of Pastel Association of Taiwan Signature Member of Pastel Society of America Member of Pastel Society of Spain Full Member of Audubon Artists Inc. E-mail: nyang842@yahoo.com.tw Pastel is a very Western medium, quite unfamiliar in the Far East, but it is well suited for expressing the Zen ideals of tranquility and harmony in natural beauty.

They are also wonderfully symbolic, evoking both traditional and personal images. The hope is that the work will bring both pleasure and meaning in the viewing, as it does in the creating.
