Surrounded by the imagination and wonder that animals evoke we know that your child or grandchild will begin their own journey of discovery.
Artist John Banovich says, “I have always been fascinated by the power of a hand drawn line. A well-placed line creates lost and found areas, defining contour, shapes and boundaries, leading the eye to interpret in three dimensions. Mimicking musical notes on a page, lines evoke a reaction in our heart, mind and soul and narrate a story with precision.
I started drawing at approximately age three with wax crayons and today I reconnect with my inner child using conte’ crayons. Invented in 1795 by the French Painter Nicolas-Jacques Conte’ (1755-1805). The conte’ crayon’s ability to maintain integrity while creating soft and hard edges quickly became a medium that artists, young and old love to sketch with.
Born of my deep love for my own children and the desire to create something simple and beautiful for their rooms, with a nod to my inner child, I am so pleased to introduce my new sketch series called WILD CHILD.”
