Artist: Natalie Higgins, United States
Artist Statement: I love experimenting and playing in my sketchbook. It gives my brain a break from the technical and precise work of designing and making jewelry, my day job. I enjoy trying to capture the expression and mood of the human face. I start my drawings with a simple pencil sketch trying to place facial features. After the pencil sketch, I paint layers of watercolor to the desired depth and color I’m trying to achieve. Finally, I use ballpoint pen crosshatching to create more depth, add texture and focus on details. I enjoy all types of media, but my favorite is a mixed-media combination of watercolor and ballpoint pen.

MEDIA: Pencil, watercolor, ballpoint pen
SURFACE: Beta Series – Extra Heavyweight – 270 gsm – White – Cold Press Finish
ABOUT THE ARTIST: Natalie Higgins is an artist and jewelry designer living in Magnolia, Texas with her husband, two labradors and two cats. She has a creative soul that loves to explore various mediums with the goal of having fun and relaxing. Sketching allows her to have the freedom to play.
