Life Drawing

Here are some of my favorite drawings from a class I took in 2005. I love to draw, especially the human body. I have always tried to go back to drawing the figure to keep my skills alive. One can never really stop learning.

habitot-in-situ

Habitot is based in Berkeley CA. They commissioned me in 2001 to paint this space mural for their space exhibit. I really enjoyed painting this on such a large canvas. I was pregnant with my second during this time so it was quite the challenge! My intention was to not make any black space actually black. So the black areas are made of many colors. Difficult to see in any photograph. It was a little disheartening to see it in the space at the museum as they stuck the glow in the dark stars on the canvas! A learning moment to keep calm!

Michelangelo Chest- Hand Painted

Using gold leaf and acrylics along with some colored conte pencils I transformed this discarded chest into a celebration of Michelangelo. Every area, including the drawers inside are painted or drawn on. There are hidden drawings inside the outer sides of the drawers. I lined the drawers with material. I also decoupaged a mirror to sit on the top of it. I was working in a frame shop at the time so got to make the mirror from scratch. Fun times!

From 1999-2000 I was the sole graphic designer for the live music venue and supper club at the Ladbroke’s Casino San Pablo in CA. I designed brochures, weekly fliers, posters, newspaper ads, programs and backlights. Here are some of my favorites from that time.
