My Uncle Nick was big influence on me when I was growing up. He was a talented artist and I remember his paintings hanging on the walls of our home. Uncle Nick was very supportive of my artistic efforts and his encouragement included giving me art supplies as Christmas and birthday gifts. I remember how whenever he would say good-bye, his parting words were always, “keep drawing.” I think he appreciated that part of his legacy would be his influence on me and my art. What better legacy could an uncle have?
This fall, my niece Amber begins college to study fashion design and photography. She is very talented and I can't wait to see how she grows as an artist.
Keep drawing Amber!
