Artist Statement: As a proud Nonna, my first attempt at drawing was inspired by my granddaughter. The surprisingly pleasing result totally disintegrated the memory of humiliation I felt when my high school art teacher publicly criticized my art project! Thirty five years ago! I mentally thumbed my nose at the memory and a determination was borne to never cease seeking techniques to improve my drawing skills. AND I also continue to praise every childs creations as if they were Picassos!
