My first love of art is pencil drawing. I have an interest in still life renderings. The pencil offers to me such dramatic and soft contrasts. It to me is an amazing media, with endless possibilities. I, however, am not as sharp on my skill as I wish I could be. With having taught so far 25 years, I have put projects on hold. Teaching art has dramatically changed and even in the arts, a lot of programs and paperwork have evolved, which has changed the face of teaching in the arts. I plan to resurrect my skill by becoming involved in a community of my peers. In doing so, maybe it will re-ignite my spark and love of my God-given skill.
