This is an old sketch that I did when I was just seventeen years old. I created this on mat board and used magic markers to create all the dots. When I dragged this piece from my old portfolio case it reminded me of how much I used to love to sketch. It was through the joy of sketching that I first began to take art seriously. Through the years I have painted, designed, photographed, and crafted. When I discovered kindred spirits on the Internet who have sketchbooks in blogland, I knew just what I wanted to do. So, I am beginning to sketch again, and enjoying the joy of sketching as my new hobby.

- I was raised in Long Island, New York and in my early twenties, moved to Manhattan and worked there for many years in the computer field. I have been an artist as long as I can remember. I started painting in 1983 while living in Princeton, New Jersey. I found lots of inspiration when we moved to Hong Kong for my husband's work. Five years later, we moved to Toronto. We returned to New England in 2002 and I have enjoyed all the creative and inspiring resources that surround me. The Lord has blessed my life with a wonderful family and many gifts.
