American artist Pamela Maxwell told us...
I have lived in Wichita, KS, for 28 years and work fulltime. I was raised in a military family so we never lived anywhere for more than four years until my father retired, but if you were to ask me where I'm from I would tell you - ALABAMA. I am a huge football fan, and I love to cook.
At Christmas last year, a dear friend gave me a sketch pad and some pencils. I had never drawn before but thought I'd give it a try. It immediately became a real passion and I found it to be the most wonderful, relaxing thing I have ever done.
I have always been an animal lover and have developed a real passion for drawing them, especially big cats. They have totally taken over my heart. But, I enjoy the challenge of drawing many other things and I am continuing to build my portfolio. I hope to have many more drawings to post as time permits.
