Former Scotland County Resident's Art Included in New Book



Denise Howard's portrait of Elena Myers, a 17-year-old motorcycle racer and the first female to win an AMA Supersport race, is featured in "Amazing Pencil Portraits 3".

Santa Clara, CA - Former Scotland County resident Denise Howard's art career is continuing to climb. Her portrait of Elena Myers, a 17-year-old motorcycle racer and the first female to win an AMA Supersport race, is featured in "Amazing Pencil Portraits 3". The book is published by Platte Productions Publishing and is available via www.Blurb.com and (soon) Amazon.com. The first 15 pages of the book can be previewed at http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/2672150.

Denise said it must be due to "good karma" because upon completing the portrait she presented it to Elena and her family as an "appreciative fan's gift". "Elena is an amazing young woman--faster than most men on a motorcycle, yet down-to-earth, genuinely nice and naturally beautful. Race pictures are a dime a dozen, so I wanted to capture her just being herself. My reference photo was taken in the paddock at Infineon Raceway during an AMA race weekend while she was signing posters."
