"I am so delighted to sponsor this challenge.  I absolutely love Art & Crafts!  I have a bachelor's degree in Fine Arts, but my first drawing lessons were received from my father, he is a painter too. For many years, I painted portraits, caricatures and children's illustrations.  My hope is that you find in my shop graphics that make you smile and inspire you to create many things :)"
