The SAMFA Gift Shop featured artist for March is Blanca Hernandez. Blanca’s blind contour art depicts loose lines in India ink and pops of watercolor to create colorful and expressive portraits.
“I love blind contour-style drawing because of the way it can capture a subjects’ character and essence without worrying about perfectly proportional details. Since no one is perfect, I hope my drawings can help us all enjoy being imperfect.”
Blanca E. Hernandez is an Angelo State University graduate with a B.F.A in Studio Art with a concentration in Graphic Design.
