shallot


One thing I have always felt passionate about is art. Drawing is the first thing children learn to do to communicate with others and make sense of their world. There is something very primitive, yet sophisticated, about a beautiful graphite drawing rendered well. In creating still lifes, I hope to draw attention to the simple things in life that are often overlooked, celebrating the mundane as something rather spectacular. I hope my love of the traditional media of graphite on Moleskine and my passion for art comes through in all of my drawings.  Regardless of how busy my life gets at times, I return again and again to my studio, set up a still life comprised mostly of the foods I use for cooking, open up my Moleskine, and get lost in the intimate bliss of drawing.

Original graphite drawing on Moleskine paper now available in my Etsy shop.

Your passion comes through loud and clear in your fine skills.
I really need to get back to drawing every day before I forget how to see.
