I made this sketch to try to loosen up before meeting with commission client #1 on New Year's Eve. I get oddly nervous before doing a sketch portrait, so I thought I'd just put pen to paper for a few minutes before they got there. I guess it worked!
I'm an artist from Memphis, TN. I work with the written word by day and the rest of the time I can be found painting and drawing in my studio, or sketching wherever I happen to find myself. I have worked in public art and participated in the roller derby, and I’m now a technical writer, teacher at Flicker Street Studio, organizer of Memphis Urban Sketchers, executive board member of Urban Sketchers, avid reader, okay cook, obsessive list-maker and occasional curator.
