My mother is an artist, and I followed in her footsteps. I took art classes in school and in college. When I became a mother myself, I quit drawing for many years. Now that my children are grown up, I have begun to draw again. I didn't realize how much I missed it. I now enjoy drawing almost every day. Lately I mostly do digital drawing on the iPad and computer, but I also use and enjoy working in colored pencil and other traditional media.
