Charcoal Drawings on Brown Paper


I recreated the girl in the hallway on brown paper because it is such a significant image to me. In this piece she is bigger defining her as more grown up than the last drawing. I crumpled up the paper she was drawn on as if I was about to throw her away from my memory. The crumpled page was me taking my anger out on the page by physically crushing it in my hand.

This other piece is a charcoal sketch on brown paper. This is a portrait of someone crying and being sick. These extreme feelings of constantly being and feeling sick and crying are emotions I went through when creating this piece. The use of mark making let me show how I felt and the energy which went into creating this piece. I didn’t blend the charcoal instead i left it with harsh strokes. It expresses a home sickness and how sometimes I feel alone.
