Charcoal Artist

“Charcoal is very forgiving and charcoal is not very forgiving. It is messy and chaotic but at the same time can bring order to an image. You can form it into neat and nice portraits that sit on paper, or you can create ever-changing, constantly moving and formless clouds that somehow float off paper. I enjoy using charcoal for all these reasons but my favorite is being able to see the array of light and dark that one can create with it.”
