First inspired by figure classes with the acclaimed Andy Braitman; An artist/teacher who ignites the passion to see .
The fundamentals of figure work study is seeing : shape, contour shadows, weight ,form, & the beauty the figure in space .
Contours, subtle light & shading define the figure .
My figure works journey is in exploring the gestural study ; quick blurts on paper help define my style & capture the mood
It's about that fleeting moment when hand, eye , paper & instrument come together and grasp the moment of the figure in space
I embrace the simplistic tools of charcoal , graphite & paper embrace the form and create a beautiful simplicity
