I have enjoyed pencil drawing as far back as my memory takes me. I took a few evening art classes and began a career working in human resources where the closest my job came to artistic expression was creating displays and slides for management and board meetings. Interestingly enough, this allowed me to be a frequent visitor and collaborator in the Graphic Arts department.
Never able to shake the feeling that the Graphic Arts Department was where I belonged, I continued to develop, albeit slowly, my creativity and eventually participate in a few local art shows. One of them was sponsored by the National Technical Association and used the former location of the African American Museum in Detroit as a venue.
I promised myself that one day I would truly follow my passion and pursue and nurture my artistic and creative interests. Happily, that.day finally arrived!!!
In 2010, I picked up a very old, barely used set of pastels and began to draw again. I really enjoy drawing and the freedom of expression that it imparts and find that it also helps me cope with life’s unavoidable losses and unexpected disappointments.
I hope you enjoy viewing my work. Thanks for visiting! Now I’m off to do more painting. I worked on computers for 31 years so I don’t hang around here much, just trying to paint more and grow more artistically.
