ARTIST: Natalie Higgins, United States

ARTIST STATEMENT: I love experimenting and playing in my sketchbook. Most of the time I do this at night, on the couch watching television with my husband. It gives my mind 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. In this drawing, I started with just values with no real structure lines. I squint my eyes to see the darks and lights. I start tightening up my drawing a little at a time while erasing marks that are wrong. I start adding more value to create depth, add texture and focus on details.

MEDIA: Pencils, 2H-6B
SURFACE: Zeta Series – Extra Heavyweight – 270 gsm – White – Smooth Surface

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.
