She brings intricate, creature and animal-themed drawings as big as walls to exhibit in the Jane Sandelin Gallery.

"I love to draw. I love the pencil, but will often venture forth with different artistic implements. My favorite creations as of now are very large, fantastical drawings with as much detail as I dare. Do the intricacies belie the whole of the drawing? Or do they tell another, but equally true, story? I leave that to you to decide, if you like. Or perhaps a mystery is better left a mystery". -TD
