I started drawing when I was 13, I remember looking down at my sleeping dog “Stubby” and thought I wonder if I can draw her. So I started sketching her. I started with the outline, then started filling in the image, I shaded and highlighted. It took about an hour. When I was finished I was so excited it really looked like her. I ran to my dad ( who could draw anything) and showed him my drawing, he was very proud and said I did a great job. I drew a few more pictures and then got busy with life. I’ve drawn a few pictures since then, I drew a Mural of Snow White and the seven dwarves on my daughters nursery wall and painted them in 2001. The other day I was watching my daughter doing her homework and thinking how beautiful she is and I needed to draw her immediately. I grabbed a paper and pencil and started drawing! Since then I drew my daughter Emily and my son Bradley. Here are the sketches and finished drawings!
