introduction to drawing

Chaulk, charcoal, pen & ink, pencil & graphite, colored pencils and anything else that you can make a mark with.

I began drawing shortly after coloring books were introduced by my Grandma and Grandpa, and have continued honing this craft throughout my life. I begin almost all of my paintings by drawing the idea first. One of my greatest inspirations was an illustrator/professor at the community college here in Spokane that I attended named David Clemens. He taught the manual drawing classes and perspective courses and I admire his skills, talents and caring gentlemanly spirit. I have never met anyone more impressive with a pencil (or anything else) in his hands. He was magical!
