I have been drawing for as long as I can remember. It is one of my favorite media. Drawing comes easily to me but for some reason, I don't spend enough time doing it. I tend to draw things that surround me or that I just "see." I am not afraid to use artistic license in revising the arrangement or placement of what is in front of me and I pay close attention to the surrounding area. For still life drawings, I often choose specific items that hold some sentimental meaning for me and then again, other objects are chosen solely on my interest in their shape, texture or visual appeal.
