About the Artist

I began pencil drawings in high school, I was inspired by my older brother (Michael Strong) and his artistic abilities. I began to take my drawing more seriously about 10-12 years ago. For me seeing the look on a person’s face to the drawing I have done of their loved one is a satisfaction that’s indescribable. Since being laid off during the Covid19 Pandemic this has become my primary source is income.
