Hello, my name is Melinda. I started drawing portraits nearly 9 years ago. (I was 34)...It came by accident to me...well, not really. It came by God's grace. I was a house parent at a children's home in Florida. One of the girls in the home encouraged me to try drawing and I did. I haven't looked back. It's just in me and I guess it always was...It just took time to discover!
