Portraits

Portraits are one of my favorite things to create. I have always been drawn to faces, human of course, especially my loved ones! I am also intrigued when I see a face in inanimate objects, something that I have experienced for as long as I remember. I am continually challenged by drawing a face, trying to get the placement of the eyes in just the right spot, and can spend hours on a single drawing, perfecting it over and over until it resembles as closely as possible, my muse of the moment. I also love to collage faces, playing with all kinds of papers and textures to replicate skin tone and hair. I have even come to like doing self portraits after so many being forced on me in art school!
