I am an Art Educator at a charter school in Northeast Florida.
I specialize in drawing.
This drawing is of a slightly older individual and the rendering is deliberately incomplete. The unfinished nature of the image alludes to the idea that although aged, the individual has not reached the end of their lives. Therefore the subject has more living, growing, and maturing to do.
This piece was created using graphite. It demonstrates the struggles of those who suffer from mental illnesses on the inside and on the outside.
There is a purpose in the rope being tied loosely. The individual has the liberty to free themselves but remains enslaved by their own choice. Many times we know exactly what to do, but refuse to do just that. Sometimes we want freedom, but we use our liberty to remained chained to what we hate.
This image was completed in graphite and black pastel with a matte finish.
A tribute to my mother for her consistent efforts to assist me throughout grad school.
