Urania Christy Tarbet   
Pollock Pines, California, USA

An internationally renowned teacher of oil and pastel, Urania enjoys the challenge of capturing the light and color on each new painting.  She considers her love of her adopted state, California, to be the reason for her joy of painting in plein air.  To understand the nuances of the landscape is color and light in it's highest form.  This has become the hallmark of paintings by 'Urania'.

Her art studies began while attending The Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles.   She is a Signature and Life Member of the Pastel Society of America; was awarded the IAPS Master Circle in 2005, and is an Artist Member with the prestigious California Art Club. Her work has been featured in The American Artist; The Artist Magazine; International Artist; The Pastel Journal and twelve instructional art books.  She has two pastel instructional DVD's, one which has been featured numerous times on PBS.  Urania is the founder and President of the International Association of Pastel Societies.
