This exhibit features her still life and animal drawings as well as several oil paintings including equine, domestic animals, still lifes and landscapes. About Candice As a child, I was quickly acquainted with the art world. It was one of the only constants in my life besides my family as we moved around pretty consistently for my earliest years. My teachers encouraged me to pursue art, though when the time came to choose a profession, I elected to pursue the path of a veterinarian. Very soon after, an epiphany struck me: this is not where I belong. Within a very short period of time, I was enrolled in art classes and finally found where my passion truly lay. Although initially excited about my entrance into the creative world, I was quickly struck with the awesome realities and self-criticisms that brought my art gusto to a brief but sudden stop. Unimpressed with my own work, I put down the brush to pursue Graphic Design. Although I still painted occasionally, I never felt as satisfied with my work as I wanted to be, and this always kept my brush hesitant to meet canvas. However, after four years, I came to terms with my skills and my desires as a professional artist, and the brush remarried my hand and they’ve barely been parted since.
