I've always loved to draw ever since I was small but I never really practiced everyday and was a bit timid with my progress. My oldest brother, Chuck, passed in 2006 and my life suddenly changed right before my eyes. He was the one who always encouraged me to do better, to pursue my career in the Arts and to keep on practicing. I was so lost when he passed and for some reason, I started drawing like crazy. I honed my style, developed the confidence I needed, and just appreciated the "art" in itself. The drawings helped me heal through those hard times. I miss my brother dearly and I promise to dedicate my first children's book in his memory. Here's a series of drawings depicting my family. Enjoy!
