This is what I look at when I’m working at my desk at home.
My exhibit at the ’62 Center in Williamstown, MA
Dancing and drawing are two of my favorite things, and it’s been a joy to combine them in this project. I’ve been auditing Janine‘s ballet classes for several semesters, which has been transformative for me inside and out. While drawing the dancers, I can feel the movements in my own body as I put them down on paper. The water color pieces were done from life, while the more detailed line drawings were done from photographs I took during rehearsals. I wanted to both express movement and capture the beauty of the poses.
Here’s a close-up of my outfit in the bathroom:
This dress was originally short and tight– I remade it to fit me better. The shoes were my mom’s. Click on each of the images below to see them larger.
