My name is, Mrs. Francine Heykoop, married to a handsome Dutch man since twenty two years ago. Had 5 children. I have really began to learn how to draw 25 years ago,I lived in a little town in Quebec named Farnham born and raise there . I had a private teacher in my town, and was like my grand mother for me, because of her age,we got along very well. She was given me a lot of her good tips, and it helped me to learn how to draw a lot better, she gave me choices, in what kind of drawing I rather do to begin with I choose at first, pencil and charcoal, although she talked me into learning oil painting later. Some of my favourites is pencil and charcoal. I used some pastel and might come to get acquainted more with the paint brush. Although with at least 5 Painting that I made I'v e learned a bit more about how to handle the paint brushes. I Like to bring more colours into my work, it brings like a ray of sunshine in the house.
I took a long break of drawing, between giving birth and raising my children, had a lot of busy time while they were very young.
