Stargazer is a collection of works created in the summer of 2013. It is composed of 12 pencil and acrylic on wood pieces and 10 small pencil and embroidery on canvas pieces. I have been particularly drawn to the use of pencil on wood. I find the combination of the detailed graphite drawings and bright pops of flat color on the neutral wood grain to be intriguing. It is a mixture of complexity and simplicity. A juxtaposition of the soft quiet monochrome shading to the loud bursts of color and hard graphic lines. The subject matter is based on different constellations
