My name is Jen and I started drawing again about a year ago after about a 25 year hiatus. I prefer graphite over charcoal and have also dabbled in colored pencil and acrylic painting. Tried oils, but could never catch on. I've never had any formal training/classes (studied journalism in college, but never finished) so I've learned what I know through trial and error along with a few reference books. I'm still learning, though, and hope to be at a level to be able to sell my drawings.
