Pencil drawings of pets that I have drawn from photographs.

One of my most exciting accomplishments to date: winning a portrait contest in the Detroit Free Press.

This is a large self-portrait - 19.25" x 18" - done with pencil and graphite for a college drawing class. When I was reading the Free Press one day, I saw that they were looking for entries for a contest. The big van Gogh self-portrait show was due to come to the Detroit Institute of Arts, so they wanted people to send portraits. I had this portrait that I had done, so I figured I ought to try. I actually won the contest, and received 4 tickets to the van Gogh show. It was a wonderful show, but I think it was even more exciting being on the front page of The Way We Live!
