Feature Friday: Sometimes I Swirl

Midwestern girl who finds inspiration in surrealism, Paul Klee, and black-and-white art of all kinds, Sarah Hennessey has always been an avid drawer/doodler and loves to play with painting mediums, too. Her weapon of choice is the archival ink pen, which allows her to have a lot of control and get detailed in every drawing. She doesn’t set out to swirl, the spiraling movement just comes out in almost any new composition, so she’s learned to just embrace it. πŸ™‚

If anyone has tried to make a TON of French knots, then you know how Ah-mazing Sarah’s work is! Β I have been thinking about French knots lately and even had a project to start but lost it somewhere. Β She has totally inspired me to try them again.

Here are a few of her pieces, as you can see, she does more than French knots!
