In early January, I broke my dominant hand– my drawing hand. It was a big setback initially, but I ended up exploring other ways of working and it didn’t end up being quite so bad. I drew with my left hand a lot and played around with collages and other experiments. Here are some of the first ones I attempted:

I ended up doing a couple of pieces for Louisville Magazine using my left hand and some digital manipulation- I’m pretty proud of how these turned out.

This one was for Mary Welp’s Dine In column. I drew the oranges and scallop shells really big with my left hand and then shrunk them down and played with them in photoshop.
