As a former ballet dancer, I am continually inspired by the images of ballet. Sometimes a grand moment on stage, and other times a simple gesture in a rehearsal studio. My ballet series touches on all aspects of a dancer's work: performance, rehearsal, class, etc. In ballet training I learned to appreciate structure and the nuances of intricate detail. Working in pencil requires incredible precision, hours of technical work, and leaves little room for error. As my chosen medium, colored pencil has always given me a sense of familiarity to my time as a dancer.
