Robert Wilson, Chattanooga Member Since February 2010 Artist Statement I took up drawing as a teenager after being inspired by my mother's drawings. After a 30 year absence, I picked up the pencils again when I was bored one day. I have been drawing as a hobby for a year or so. So far, I have only worked with graphite, but would like to branch out into colored pencils and pastels. I prefer to draw wildlife animals and pets. I am always trying to improve, so please feel free to leave any comments and critiques.
