Artist’s Statement

Every child draws, as you know. I just never stopped. As soon as my hand was able to hold a pen, I drew several hours each day. My family was supportive, each of them posing for me many times. I drew in stores, on the bus, and to my teacher's mortification, in math class, my model being of course, my poor teacher! I began drawing caricatures professionally in 1985. It is still delightful to me that I succeed at my career by doing art which I enjoy and work hard at. What keeps me drawing caricatures are two things: my art and my customers. I love to keep on trying new things in art. And my customers keep on amazing me with their warmth, laughter and appreciation.
