The last semester has been filled with practice pieces. I haven't focused on a more serious project in months, but that's ok sometimes! It feels good to experiment - when things don't work out just draw some flowers or slap on a sticky note ya know?
My favorite head sketches from my Art Center course. We especially focused on form and expression. Also found a new love for Derwent drawing pencils - super smooth & blendable.
During the spring semester, I took a class called Heads & Hands through Art Center Extension. Here are a few of my favorite practice sketches from the course.
This pup portrait was commissioned by a good friend of mine for the holidays.

The moment you've all been waiting for...
I know you want a sticker of a frog smoking under a beautiful night sky with a full moon while a cricket sings below some mushrooms. Obviously.
I took a drawing class this semester and never posted any works because I tried to practice what I'm bad at! Also learned more about free, creative drawing while improving technical skills rather than doing the precise, realistic work I've always done.
This was my drawing final-- to create an autobiographical piece.
Unfortunately, finals weeks was rough so I worked on this for about 8 hours straight (divided by a bit of sleep) the night before it was due... so I plan to go back and fix some things and add a bit more I had planned!
Until March, it will be displayed at Oxy's student gallery.
This was actually my first project in my sculpture class before we got into wood and clay.
now hanging in my dorm room:)
I made this basket by crocheting VHS tape.. had never crocheted before so this was a very interesting and time consuming process.
The basket is small- childlike! Inside are baby's breath, roses, and a pine cone.
From as early as I can remember, I often collected things while going on walks. This piece was about memory and nostalgia which is why I specifically chose the film tape as my media to work with.
Made this for my sculpture class-- my first ceramic piece! Definitely want to work with clay again in the future.
