meet the author
Art and people are central to my being. I am trying to become a human BEING, but more than likely I am still a human doing. Creating I Want to Draw I Want to Paint took a lot of doing, but I was compelled and so here it is. It started as a scream in the night to myself, because I do want to draw and paint. But sometimes it is not all that simple for me. This book inspired me and I hope it inspires you to draw and paint too.
