I started drawing when my twin sister and I were still very small. My grandmother still keeps all our old drawings in her house. I know they are terrible, but I think it is lovely that she hangs on to them. My favour- ite technique is drawing black and white with a charcoal pencil. I have always preferred drawing portraits because I think you can feel the emotion in every person that you draw. With an object you are just copying, but when you do a face, you can feel how the person experiences an emotion at that moment.”
