Artist's Statement
Capturing the light and shadow is everything to me.  Observing my subject or surroundings helps me understand the sculptural forms of the objects.  I transfer my thoughts or feelings of the subject into a drawing, but want to give the viewer just enough information to let them create their own story.

As a Kendal School of Design graduate of illustration, I enjoy working with graphite, charcoal on cardboard, pastels and acrylics.

Jody's art exhibit will be shown at the Saginaw Charter Township Hall, 4980 Shattuck Road, Saginaw, Michigan, during business hours Monday - Friday, 8:00 am - 5:00 p.m., January 2 through January 31, 2018. The Offices are closed on Monday, January 15, 2018 for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
