People often ask me how long I’ve been drawing. In all honesty, I’ve been drawing for as long as I could hold a pencil. And although I did attend art college for a couple of years, I don’t attribute anything I can do today to what I learned then. I like to think I figured most of it out on my own through extensive practice and mountains of reading.
I’ve honed my skills as an artist over the years to not only include illustrating, but also writing, sculpting, film making, photography and music (guitar and piano). And while I still love to draw, I consider myself more of a “creator” now, if only to encompass my vast interests. I wore many hats during my 13 years in the film and television Industry and I’m now 13 years into a “second” career only to find myself sharpening my pencil once again in preparation to write the next chapter of my life. I’ve gleaned a wealth of knowledge and experience over the years but to be honest, even at 50, I’m still not sure what I want to be when I grow up.
