I am drawn to the subject of people. The human form in some aspect is almost always involved in my art. When drawing a person, I constantly find myself thinking, “who are you?” With every line I try to get closer to an answer. I am extremely intrigued by line and this is one of the reasons I enjoy figure drawing. Figure drawing is focused on mark making and studying the different facets of human form through the lines you decide to add or leave out. I never tire of investigating form, and I am fascinated by detail orientated work. It’s the type of art I like to make. Creating detailed components draws me in and encourage me to look and look and look again, picking up something new every time. I tend to work in color. There is so much that is affected by the addition of color into an art piece. Color conveys a different element of meaning and feeling that is passed to the viewer without a single word. Although I work in color more often, I have a deep love for black and white as well. I am drawn to how heavy the black sits on a page contrasting with the stark white of the page. I am absorbed in the black again and again. Whether it is full color or black and white, my art has a cohesive feeling across multiple pieces. I work digitally because it allows me easy and organized access to a wide variety of color opportunity. Still, there is something I find fulfilling about creating art in the physical realm because it allows for a satisfying texture that I can never quite recreate digitally. My work is combination of all curious things, items, and moments I carry in my head throughout the day. Through image-making I attempt to bring these experiences from my head into a physical reality.
