  1. Congratulations on being apart of this inaugural exhibition. It’s an excellent drawing!

  2. I’m excited about this new museum and I’m investigating about being a member of it. I’m also a new member of CSPA and just submitted a work for CSPA’s International exhibition. I may become a member of one of CSPA’s district chapters soon.
    I’ve been following your work (it goes far back as Mainsail in the late 90s). Colored pencil was an unknown entity then, but thanks to you, it has been elevated to an amazing international level now.
    I used to work primarily in graphite (along with Louise Cherwak, my mother), but I’ve departed into color and I’m loving what colored pencil can do! I’ve linked this site as one of my faves. Thanks Melissa!
