Ivy, the Artist's Daughter, conté drawing, 2018


I paint and draw portraits from life- my subject sitting before me as  I  watch a living person and observe all the things the person does when not intentionally posing.   During sittings with a person I portray the time we spend as well as the physical appearance and this is a crucial part of the process which opens paths to me of seeing my subject in three dimensions with the added dimension of time.
