I became fascinated with art at the age five. Not just fascinated, but enchanted. My Mother was poised on my Grandmother's couch. Peering out the window, her attention was focused primarily on the hay barn that was outside the window. Occasionally she would look down at the sketch pad in front of her, and she would draw. When I realized what she was doing, that is when I discovered that she was recording what she saw on paper with just a pencil, I was mystified. From that day until this day I have been consumed by art, all art.
