  • Honorable Mention / Fully From Life

When beginning this project, I set out to study myself. Working from life, I stood in front of the mirror every day in the quiet of my studio for several weeks. Using a quiet composition and monochromatic drawing materials, I strove to capture an inner energy without the aid of color, texture, and brushwork.
