Some of my earliest memories (age three or four) centred around drawing with crayons, excitedly sharing sheets and sheets with any adult in the vicinity. Every school essay, report or project had to have a drawing, better yet, several drawings. My unwavering interest led to art lessons by grade four. My preteen bi-weekly allowance's unfailingfirstpurchase a new thick pad of clean white typewriter paper. High-school and self earnings deliciously coincided with a discovery of Grumbacher artist supply catalogues.
Not having a creative outlet is for me an uncomfortable state. I am inherently, fundamentally, intrinsically driven to create.
