Grace Eitrheim – Lakeway, TX
When I was eleven years old, my parents moved us across state and I left behind all my childhood friends. I was afraid of meeting new people and going to a new school, so the summer of 2014 I spent a lot of time in my new bedroom with pencil and charcoal. I had never drawn anything and just started playing around. I’ve always been in to music and movies – so I started drawing those people who spoke to me through their words in songs or roles in films. So my very first charcoal was of Adele. I was not sure it looked like her but when I showed it to family and friends – they couldn’t believe the resemblance and my love for the craft was born.
