Artist Statement At an early age, elementary school in fact, I drew a deer in art class and my teacher thought I had talent. She was very encouraging. I continue to draw animals and nature scenes. I think I inherited my talent from my Dad. He did beautiful Pen & Ink drawings. I have done Pen & Ink but prefer using color. I like using various mediums, even combining them to create a picture. I have a huge love for animals and they are my favorite subject. It’s very rewarding when you can capture the kindness in they’re eyes. The reward is when they seem to come alive on paper. I just hope people enjoy looking at my art as much as I enjoy creating it.
Over the summer the AAG newsletter will be distributed as the need arises. Please continue to submit information to the newsletter so that we can all stay informed about what is happening in the Aiken art world.
