I was introduced to Brenda and her sister Betsey Garand (see below) in the “Creative Arts Mini-Dorm” at the University of New Hampshire while we were students there. A friend told me that I had to meet these amazing artists. Their drawings were impressive and I asked them how they learned to draw so well. “We just started doodling and never stopped” was their reply.
