Drawings

I use drawing in a variety of ways: sketching out ideas, planning larger works and paintings, and creating fully-realized drawings in combination with paint.

Commissioned Drawings

 

Studies

Recollecting Reality

This series involved an exploration of recollecting the facial features of close friends, family, loved ones, as well as my own face. I drew faces from memory and then painted over these images with white acrylic paint to block out sections and give the drawing surface a resistance. On top of these drawings, I then layered drawn images from the reality of those facial features, based on photographs and from life. The resulting images were sometimes comical, and other times, rather disturbing.
