Artist's description:

“She twists and leans into her deep thoughts.”

Contrapposto is an Italian term describing a person standing with most of their weight on one foot, shoulders and arms twisting off-axis from the hips and legs. I recycle materials, repurposing scraps of beautiful printmaking papers and I rescued this shard of Bockingford for the drawing.

I draw from life weekly at Swansea Print Workshop, working with professional artists and models. This underpins my artistic practice and inspires me to develop the images into other genres - printmaking, mixed media, painting and intuitive drawing. Models do it for all sorts of reasons, but they all have one thing in common, they love art and engage with art by inspiring artists.

Materials used:
