Personality on paper
I drew these pencil portraits with various graphite pencils on fine art paper. I’ve always been fascinated by faces. A drawn portrait can subtly capture the personality and mood of the sitter, which is often difficult to achieve in a photograph. It also shows all the hours that went into making a person appear on the blank sheet of paper. For me, this often creates a special connection to the person in the portrait. After many hours of close scrutiny, I have the feeling that I know the person , even though I may not have met them before.
Timeless unique pieces
A pencil portrait is a hand-drawn, unique piece that only exists once. A family portrait is often passed down through several generations.
