“The things that we love tell us what we are. -St. Thomas Aquinas
A few weeks ago, I talked about Norman Rockwell being one of my early art heroes. I had others, too. There was, of course, Charles Schulz, the creator of the Peanuts comic strip, whom I admired for his drawing ability and humor.
Anyone who could draw horses was also high up on my list.
 I admired my Grade 4 teacher for her beautiful handwriting and printing. I thought it was the best in the world. I distinctly remember sitting in class thinking, "One day I'll be able to write as well as her!". I once got her to sign my autograph book and I recently came across the page:

 I think it's interesting how I was drawn to handwriting and lettering in the same way I am now. I could have never guessed that my little passion would grow into something that I use everyday in my art!


The thing which the child loves remains in the domain of the heart until old age.
-Kahlil Gibran
