This series is about the tension that exists between chaos and order. Each drawing is a process for me is to find a balance between the two, and the beauty in both.
These drawings are created with charcoal, graphite and soft pastels. I appreciate the unpretentious, organic and inherently messy nature of these mediums, and each provides characteristics that complement the other. I often burnish and blend the colors with my hands to create wide, smooth backgrounds.
