Some time ago, I was introduced to an incredible artist by the name of Andy Espinoza. He works mainly with oils and charcoal, and creates breathtaking portraits and nudes. His romantic hand beautifully captures emotion within his portraiture… which take his work to another level. It’s incredible when you look into the eyes of a drawing and feel something beyond the two dimensional world before you.


Andy and I spoke about collaborating over the summer and we’ve finally made it happen. He sent me one of his charcoal portraits, which I then painted over with gouache. I’m usually not that intimidated to start a painting, but with a fear of ruining his work… this one made me nervous! I think the result is so special though… two different artists, minds, thoughts, mediums, processes, together on one page.


Her eyes tell it all.
