" I began drawing at a very early age with cartoon characters. Spent my high school years experimenting with color pencils, acrylics, collages and other medium. After high school I attended Hiram College in North Eastern Ohio where I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree majoring in High School Education|Studio Art with specialties in Oil Painting and Black and White Photography. Even with all these experiences I found myself coming back to the graphite pencil. The simplest form of artisitc experssion often brings forth the most dramatic results. I found that it wasn't the subject of the portrait that was created but the capturing of the light and dark spaces that intrigued me the most. The ability to take these light and dark spaces and create a memory, emotion and everlasting conection with the subject is a very rewarding experience." -Paul Reynolds
