I could draw realistically by the time I was eight and studied art at Eastern Michigan University.
After raising a family I pursued a career in picture framing. I have been a professional picture framer for the past twenty years and am certified by the Professional Picture Framing Association.
I continued to draw, but never understood how to show others how to draw. After reading Dr. Betty Edwards Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain I have finally found a way to help others get past their anxiety and find the joy of drawing.
