"I discovered a love for drawing when I was just a little girl. Over the years what I thought was fun as a kid has evolved into a passion for art, particularly pencil portraits. I love all kinds of art but my favorite medium remains the almighty pencil. I love the simplicity of the black and white and the effects and illusions you can create with varying shades and tone. I get so much satisfaction from turning a blank piece of paper into something beautiful. I love the challenge of capturing the essence and personality of a person through my drawing".
