Biography: Page pioneered a new, contemporary technique for using pastels, encouraged by British and American artist friends. She used flat, broad areas to create an exciting texture resembling paint on linen; a technique Page still uses in her work today. After meeting her husband, Page moved to the UK in 1985, where the British press were enraptured with the new American artist. A BBC documentary was made about her and she was featured in national newspapers. However, Page still felt she had to overcome the obstacles of being a rare female in a very male-dominated world. She grew up in a large family, with brothers and a strong-headed mother, who taught her that being female was no obstacle. It wasn’t until she turned thirty, that Page realized she would have to work much harder to be taken as seriously as her male counterparts. In the last twenty years, Page has lectured and established a business, The Art Study Centre, preparing and training art students of all ages.
