|Little Navajo Girl. Southwestern Native American. Pencil Sketch. by Travis Simpkins|
I've been creating art professionally for nearly 20 years. Many people who make a sincere effort to inquire about my career are surprised to learn that I devoted the first two years almost exclusively to creating portraits of Native Americans. I made this portrait sketch of a little Navajo girl about 18 years ago. It holds a special meaning for me and it's the only piece of my own artwork that I have having on the walls of my home.
