ARTIST STATEMENT

My focus is on nature as inspiration for my artwork, 'Mother Nature', a progressive series of 4 drawings. The artwork is in a contemporary context with the underlying message that humanity is destroying our environment. This underlying message is shown in the personification of Mother Nature appears to get progressively more hopeless and sick. The series is meant for the viewer to see and understand that the earth is polluted and that we're killing it. The series is implying that people should maintain and take care of the environment we inhabit before we cause irreversible changes.

ARTWORK PROCESS

I found reference images and sketched out the image. Drew over in pen, shaded and added contour and form. Added detail shadow and texture to features such as hair and flowers.
