Drawing has become a favorite pastime of mine when I am in need of time to relax or want to release some creative energy. Early on I did not enjoy drawing as much as I do now and saw it as an unnecessary step in design. Being a perfectionist certainly did not help, as it took me copious amounts of time perfecting every little detail and making sure the specific line was as straight as possible. Eventually I was able to get myself out of that mindset and learned to incorporate my mistakes into whatever was being drawn. I directed my work into the realm of abstract art where indescribable forms open a viewer’s mind and elicit a variety of emotions.
