Art has always been an immense passion and influence in my life. From a young age, drawing, coloring, and painting would help me express myself and feel free. I grew up pursuing an education like my peers --graduating high school in the U.S. and moving on to college. I knew all along that there was something bigger waiting for me.
I never dreamt I could pursue my passion professionally, but after being given this opportunity at Accademia Riaci in beautiful Italy, it seems more than possible. With the help of a few well-known professionals in Florence, I can continue to learn and blossom as an artist.

Painting Drawing vol.6 (One-year 2019 – Kristin)

I decided my next subject would be another classic: Michelangelo’s Brutus. Same concept: classic materials (sepia and water wash) with a modern approach. Pictured above is a reference photo and some progress pictures.

Finally, I added the patches of color. It brightened the piece extensively. These portraits were a great refresher for mechanics, proportions, achieving likeness, and self expression. Currently I am working on a larger piece (150cm x 150cm) to advance these skills and add to the collection. Unfortunately I lost photos of it when my phone was stolen last month, along with a lot of the progress pictures.
