Nyla Hayes began drawing when she was about 4 years old — and she loved it.
When she turned 9, she started to draw what she calls Long Neckies, sketched portraits of women from diverse backgrounds who have long, narrow necks.
“My favorite dinosaur was the Brontosaurus and I was really into dinosaurs at the time,” said Hayes, who is now 12. “So I wanted to add that to my Long Neckies because I thought it was super cool.”
