Alain Picard earned a BA in illustration from Western CT State University and went on to study at the Art Student's League in New York City. He cites Sargent, Degas, and Sorolla among his artistic influences. A love of light and beauty are immediately apparent in his pastel and oil paintings.

A frequent workshop instructor and demonstrator for art associations, schools, galleries and museums, he recently demonstrated at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the National Arts Club in New York City. In an effort to share his passion for art with others, Alain’s first book, "Pastel Basics," was published in 2013, followed by a series of instructional DVD’s in pastel. His newest book, "Mastering Pastel," was released on April 29, 2015.
