Artist Statement

“I’ve only decided to become an artist this past summer and have been working on my art school portfolio up to this point. I was fortunate enough to get a scholarship to a figure drawing class. In this charcoal observational drawing, I focused on creating a dramatic lighting on the torso and lower region of the figure.

I’m unsure how I would go about to further push the piece to be more experimental or interesting. I want to catch the eye of the viewer so it makes them look back and think.”
