I did and still do. My parents never understood who I was as an artist,
still don't. I went to the different drum. I wasn't the "in your face
type,' When I was young, I had some unfortunate things happen to me. One
of them was I was in a wheelchair for three years. Up until this time I
thought I would go into science. I turned inward and found I could create
my own world to disappear into. I drew A LOT!
Then one day my science teacher showed the class about three of my intricate
colored pencil drawings of cells. I felt exalted! It was one of the most
powerful moments of my life. God bless Mr.. Ashworth. I've learned art is
another language...
