Our world is full of extremely talented individuals. People that use their creativity and take it to the next level. There are artists, creators, and inventors that seem to use a part of their brain to establish a new and exciting piece of work. The more surprising part about these accomplished individuals are the ones who realized and utilized their talent at such a young age. Most people don’t accept their abilities until an older, more mature, age. For Heather Rooney, she found her passion and used that towards her love for art. She is only 21 years old, and specializes in photo-realistic art. The kicker though, is that all of her work is created by only using a pack of pencils. It’s hard for me to believe that the following photos are all done with her creativity and a package of simple colored pencils. Enjoy!
