I have drawn for most of my life. I always drawn since I was young. It gave me a outlet to just think outside of the norm. But in the last 20 years I really haven't done anything with it. But I was given an opportunity in 2022 to showcase, at a gallery, what I was talented in and I choose realism of animals. I have always loved drawing them. So in a month and a half I finished 7 graphite drawings of various animals from Iowa. I will continue to draw because alot of people said they could not believe that I had not drawn in so long and just picked it back up. Painting is not my strongest but it is something that I am working on.
