Ross Marx is a pastel painter devoted to creating elusive abstractions and non-representational expressions based on nature and recalled memories. However ultimately, she is interested in drawing the viewer into experiencing the texture, depth, detail, design and lush colors of the artwork rather than eliciting a direct interpretation to a scene.
