Marie Frances is a contemporary American artist who thoughtfully captures expression and gesture in her drawings. She has cultivated her technical mastery for many years, developing exceptionally strong drafting skills. She carefully renders with delicate detail bringing life to her subjects.
The process of learning to draw has been transformative for Marie….sometimes painfully and sometimes joyfully transformative. Each drawing in this portfolio has endured many long hours of focused observation and an emphatic searching for the beauty in each person represented.
“Navigating the space between the drawing and the thing-which-is-drawn means we form a relationship with both. This cultivates an outer and inner awareness of the world we inhabit. Through drawing, we don’t just notice – we see.” Tim Parsley in ‘Why Draw’
