| A.J. McCOY
Representational wildlife painter in oil and watercolor, born In
Painesville, Ohio. According to her, "I don't know of another field
that has more people telling you how great your work is than art.
When they should be telling you that it stinks, they tell you how
gorgeous it is. If you tend to be so proud of yourself that you
believe all of this, you will never advance very far. Be your own
worst critic, but be honest, too. If it is good, say so. If it stinks,
say it, but be able to tell the difference."
