Coloring Queen: Do you remember the first thing that you drew and if so, what was it?
Alecia: I am told that I started drawing when I was about 2 years old and never stopped. I have a drawing from kindergarten that my mother made into a plate, so that is frozen in time. In this very colorful drawing, I am apparently very happy, with the sun shining and grass growing under my feet while I am holding a triangle and stick (a kindergarten musical instrument).
