[one_half first] [/one_half][one_half]I am incredibly grateful to everyone who has supported and helped to develop my career as an artist. There is a very long list of people I can thank, but that might turn this into the length of a thesis. So, I’ll just name a few. I’d like to express special thanks to Bryan Elsley who saw some potential in me and gave me my first job as an artist. Also, I would like to thank Tatyana for being so amazing and supportive. You’re not just a great person, you’re a great and loyal friend. Matt Holmes, is a friend I [/one_half]
gained after he married a good friend of mine. Matt is one of the first people to not only support my artwork, but purchase some as well. That means a lot to me.
Last, but not least I would like to thank my Mom, Virginia Hickman, for always lending an ear and giving her kind, strong and unbiased opinion. Without her support, I know I would have gotten back into drawing, but I don’t think I would have the confidence and the drive to keep doing what I’m doing. I’ve found that starving artist is a very real term. Everyone needs someone like you in their lives. Your support means so much to me.
