Not alot to say as I've never studied art or was steered in that direction by my parents when I was young. Coming from a middle class
Russian background there really wasn't a lot made of my artistic ability. When it came time to work my father believed you had to sweat and toil and not sit in front of an easel so I was working very early in life.
I never put down my pencil or brushes and would draw any chance I could even if it meant going into work exhausted the next day. Art has
always been a great escape for me and could take me to places and meet the strangest people all of whom inhabited my mind.
The years have passed and this middle aged man continues to visit these far away places and unique characters and loves every minute of it
and wouldn't trade my talent for all the gold in the world. I thank Xara for creating such wonderful software that now allows me to be as bold and artistic as I've ever been with my work!
