Vicky DeLong

Vicky is a ceramic artist who has been professionally working in clay for the past thirty years. 
She generally uses colored pencil when she begins drawing a design for a new clay project.  The pencils have lent themselves to testing just the right colors for a new design.

Many of her friends are colored pencil artists belonging to the Colored Pencil Society (CPSA) in San Diego, Chapter 202.  They encouraged her to work in colored pencil, not only to use them strictly for designing new clay projects.  Many have also given her gifts of colored pencil sets and other supplies needed to create in colored pencil.

In 2014, Vicky gave a demonstration/workshop to CPSA Chapter 202 at one of their monthly meetings.  She made six inch clay tiles so the members could experiment drawing on the tiles with whatever pencils they wished. Afterwards everyone discussed the success or not with drawing on the tiles.

Ever since that time, when not creating in clay, Vicky goes to colored pencils.  In late 2014, she became a member of National CPSA and District Chapter 202.  Prismacolor is her preferred brand of pencils because of the wide range of color choices and the waxy character of the pencils.
