A friend asked who had sketched this drawing, so I began searching the internet. This is what found. The print is titled “Every Moment Matters” created by John Nelson. The print is a commemorative work of art created by Mr. Nelson, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the “2003 Black Women’s Health Imperative
According to the Black Women’s Health Imperative the “Washington, D.C. native, John Nelson, is completely self-taught. His style is marked by extremely detailed renderings that capture moods and emotions most other artists can only hope to imitate. His natural talents give him the ability to bring out a depth and warmth that has enchanted critics and art enthusiasts alike. What makes Nelson’s drawings unique and vastly different are that his drawings project a personal nature using a three dimensional effect that you simply have to see to believe. For more than twenty years, Nelson has worked diligently to master his gifted talent by expressing, in pencil, deeply embedded spiritual experiences and involvement with people.”
