Some of my favorite sketches from my drawing course while studying abroad in Florence, Italy (summer 2012). I decided to take on a personal focus and concentrate on lions. Most of these are quick studies with a couple of extended studies. All are drawn from life using pen and marker.
2-3. Sante Croce
4. Bargello (Donatello)
5. Logia de Lanzi
6. Medici Museum
"Voicless" (this piece was done for a controversial themed art show, and I chose animal testing; the bars of the cage are made up of cosmetic, household, and medical companies that actively test on animals)
Mixed media on Bristol, including blood and coffee
Here’s a quick snippet of my portion of the gallery for my BFA Senior Show exhibit… I was very honored to have been chosen to display on the back center wall. The theme of my show was albino/white rabbits and the concept was fertility. I utilized the rabbits as symbols to create my own allegories on the concept.
"Rebirth & Renewal"
"Milk & Honey"
This summer I’m going to focus on professionally documenting my work and uploading to Behance… graduation is tomorrow!
