Artist StatementI am passionately exploring techniques in charcoal pencil and color media. Creating both a likeness and story in my portraits. I am using my art to also explore connections to those around me as well as using self reflection to curate subjects and themes.
Jessica McKelvin is combining charcoal pencil with paints and inks to create mixed media portraits. She combines realistic black and white portraits with accents of color to create her own unique style. Though residing in the Baltimore area, she draws inspiration from family and friends globally.
