Double the Kudos


Congratulations to Michael and Julie Freeman! 

Both have been awarded Master Pastellist status by the The Pastel Society of Australia (PSA). “This is a special highlight in our artistic journey and the first time that we have received such a significant milestone together,” says Michael.

“Granny’s Box” (pastel, 15 1/2 x 24 in.) by Michael Freeman
“Ewe Following Me” (pastel, 11 x 12 in.) by Julie Freeman

“The application process was professional, rigorous, and thorough. Conducted in two parts, the final assessment required six framed original paintings which were reviewed by a panel of PSA Master Pastellists.”

Paint along with Julie Freeman, Albert Handel, Aaron Schuerr, Ellen Eagle, and other top pastel artists at Pastel Live, this August!
