Title: The Empress
Medium: Pen & Ink
Dimensions:22.5 in. by 19.5 in.
Statement:“My work is about compelling images and interesting techniques. The subject matter is almost exclusively portraits or figurative work. I draw my ideas from spontaneous inspiration, either people who I have known for a period of time, and suddenly see in some new light, or the stranger that I encounter in an original setting. Sometimes the concept comes before the subject and I search for the right face or form to adapt to the idea. Pen and Ink is my primary medium. The techniques of pointillism and cross-hatching are the two expressions that I favor most. Pointillism is the technique of composing pictures from thousands of hand placed dots of ink, creating colors and shades by the juxtaposition of the dots. Crosshatching is the use of overlapping lines, drawn in multiple directions, building shade and texture as you go.”
