Crows, 2011, (after photo by Marko Laine), is one of five drawings I did of crows or raven. I find that to record the movement and fidgety nature of birds that drawing works well. I chose charcoal as the dust allows me to play with an atmospheric rendering of the bird's movement. Its deep black color is perfect for crows. The white highlights are done with conté crayon. This drawing was done on tan paper. Crows has been exhibited at Boeringer Ingleheim Corporation, Danbury, CT, "The Art of Caring", 2012, Wild Vine, Bronxville, NY, 2012, The Burr Homestead, Fairfield, CT, JLEFC's 22nd Annual Art Show, 2013.
I grew up in rural Ohio. While earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts in drawing and painting at The Ohio State University, I was awarded a Ford Foundation Grant. I then moved to NYC to attend New York University, spent a semester abroad in Venice, Italy and earned a Master’s degree in studio art. The New York metropolitan area has been my home ever since. I now live and work in Yonkers with my husband John, who provides invaluable support, advice, and carpentry skills.
