"My introduction into the world of charcoal and pencil portraiture began when I should have been working on a research project instead of drawing. I was instantly hooked by the meditative process of creation and surprised by the similarities it had with sculpting. I felt the different intensities of charcoal, lifting, and blending of elements to form different facial planes and dimensions was a tactile experience I hadn't encountered before." - Devyn Samara
