The earliest time that I can remember being interested in art was at age 6. I can remember that my oldest brother David came for a visit. During his visit I watched him draw a design on a white hooded jacket. The sight of my big brother drawing intrigued me immensely. Beginning this day I started drawing everything I could think of or things that I saw. By the time I was in 3rd grade, I was blessed with having many friends that I felt drew very well. I spent a lot of time learning from them and copying some of the same topics that they drew. By the time I reached high school, my art teacher asked me if I had signed up for advanced art for the next school year. I answered no, I have not signed up for art. I also said, “I can’t take that class…those students are good”. Her reply to me was, “and so are you”. Needless to say, upon graduating from high school I attended college as an art major.
I am blessed to be able to re-create on paper what God has created. Since my topics for art and photography is of nature and wildlife. God has created my subject. I only can put it on paper in the manner in which I choose to interpret.
