The Face

This is work from this semester in a class called "The Face." In it, we explored various media and approaches to one subject - our own faces. It was good to be allowed such exploration, and I'm definitely taking what I learned during the process into my other work.

Academic Drawing, Pencil line drawing

Studies of eyes, noses, mouths

Geometric forms, straight lines vs. curved lines in simplification

Tribal mask, Multiple Exposure

Veiled Face 1 and 2

Tattooed Face (Sumerian, Babylonian, Assyrian patterns)

Stencil - Iconography series 1 and 2 - spraypaint on paper for series 1, wood panel for series 2

Collage + conté crayon - sketchbook, drawing over collage, then pure collage


  1. Geez. You really have a great knack for shading. I especially love the first face, your mini-studies, and the veil pieces. I saw the stencil pieces before, but I still find them filled with confidence and 'oomph'. Great job. Looking forward to what you'll be doing now that you are all graduated.

  2. Thank you so much! I especially appreciate the 'oomph' comment, because that's what they're meant to evoke.

    I'm looking forward to that too!
