Artist Statement

“I have been doing art for one year.  I have just been accepted to and will be attending the School of Visual Arts!  I choose to work with pencil/graphite because I thought this medium would lend itself well to the tone of the piece.  

I really wanted to try to draw over a long period of time and focus one more minute details such as wrinkles, skin texture, and hair.  This piece was independently made. I wanted this piece to really be penetrating – I wanted the eyes to stare right at the audience. I also wanted the man’s beard to be almost ever-growing, going off the frame.”
