Drawing has always been my passion – it’s always a staple for me as I’ve grown up. I love working with a variety of mediums – paints, clay, photography, but drawing will always be my favorite. It’s so easy to have the supplies readily on hand so I can sketch anywhere! Don’t get me started on the amount of sketchbooks and planners that I have all around the house!
My work mainly centers around still scenes or working with faces as they are my favorite. The face can be so expressive and different from person to person it’s fun to create unique faces and imbibe them with personality. My techniques vary – I always start with an initial sketch and from there may choose to use a layering of inks, watercolors or acrylics.
I’m also drawn to anything techie so I love to take photos and edit them with Photoshop & Lightroom. I’m also starting to tinker around with Illustrator to see what I can create!
