GENERAL DIRECTOR, HOSPITALITY CHAIRPERSON OF THE PENCIL ART SOCIETY
Artist Bio or Statement / Bio de l’artiste ou la déclaration
I have enjoyed drawing since I was a little girl. I couldn’t wait for art class to begin in school, so I could take the opportunity to sketch or doodle and paint. At home, I loved to sit and watch my Mother create what I believed to be Masterpieces and watch as she drew beautiful horses or scenery with horses, dogs and sometimes faces with nothing more than a typical HB graphite pencil or school grade coloured pencils.
Through the years I practiced my skills through rough sketching here and there and it wasn’t until my best friend showed me some new techniques she had learned using professional quality colored and graphite pencils, did my interest in serious drawing begin. It awakened a new love for creating art and, coupled with my love for horses, it seemed natural to me when I once again picked up a pencil, that I began to draw what I loved most.
I continue learning from each and every drawing that I create and I hope that, like my Mother, I will produce some “Masterpieces” that not only I enjoy, but others can enjoy as well.
