Description

A functional understanding of anatomy, gesture, and proportion is the foundation of any figural artwork. Working from a live nude model, you will develop an advanced understanding of how to render the human form convincingly from direct observation. Using a variety of materials and techniques, you will gain confidence in mark-making and grounding your figures in dynamic compositions.

She holds a MFA from Pennsylvania State University and a BFA from School of Visual Arts. Her work has been exhibited nationally and is included in corporate & private collections.
