Hillary C. Hempstead's Profile

About

I remember that day very vividly. I was about 23 and my niece was around 8, I was visiting from Hawaii where I had lived since the age of 17. I had moved there 3 days after graduating high school with my sister. Well we would come to North Carolina and visit my sister, her husband and their daughter Morgan. It seemed like a normal day, eating breakfast, watching some cartoons and deciding what to do for the rest of the day.

She made me remember that my imagination is a special gift. As a child I new that imagination was something so magical and that if not taken care of and cherished that it can dissappear. That moment of her asking me to play with my inner child I realized I had taken that gift for granted. From that moment on I new I needed to hang on with all my might to that gift and one way to do that was through my drawings. My drawing contain what is hidden deep in me. The drawing are of all different kinds but from the same source.

I hope you enjoy my gift, I do.
