a beauty

a beauty

illustrations based upon a personal refection of beauty and female emotion. a mixture of vulnerable lines and strong blocks of colour

i work fast and with a sense of fluidity. Although i draw a thousands times until i get the perfect stroke. until i feel i have captured the character and emotion of the drawing.

Each drawing is a girl; a story; a part of my personality, reflected upon a page. drawing is my greatest release from the stress of normality and when i have created a sense of that on a page i am pleased.

This is colette, proud, yet modest. Both grown up but a child. beautiful none the least.
