“Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can.” – Arthur Ashe
“I am an artist by nature. I believe that my faith increases my talent. I believe that the quality of art should not be based on it’s medium nor canvas, but rather by the skill of the artist. I give a little of myself in creating which adds soul to my subjects. I am committed to expounding a newfound respect for the use of charcoal in Fine Arts.” – Adrian Pickett, Jr.
