I love to draw when I am inspired by a picture. I like to draw for my kids. I used to draw pictures for my students at school. They would sit around and watch me draw at indoor recess. I would teach them how to draw by looking for shapes in the pictures.
Some people ask me why I didn't illustrate my own books. It takes a special talent to be an illustrator. You have to be able to come up with your own ideas for characters and settings. You have to be able to draw a character over and over and make them look like the same character. I am not that good at that. Maybe someday, I will give it a try.
I love photography. My dad is a photographer and taught me a lot about taking photographs. I have taken many photography classes. Below is a link to some of my favorite photographs.
