Student drawing transformation

Time for Introductions!

Hi there! I'm Marina. I'm a professional visual artist, arts educator, former Tenure-Track college prof of visual arts, Founder (or Drawing Source'ress!) of The Drawing Source, and lover of puns, obviously.

I love distilling complex drawing concepts into steps that are easy to understand and apply, and consider myself successful when you increase both your skills and your enjoyment of the drawing process.

Marina Fridman

In my own creative practice these days, I create drawing installations: large-scale drawings that transform a space, such as the one below.

Outer space drawing by Marina Fridman

This artwork, titled Omniscient Body, is entirely hand-drawn (yes, even the dark background) and invites viewers to be enveloped in outer space, to approach the celestial body of Mars at their own scale, to be towered over by one of the rings of Saturn, and to look up at planet Earth and the Moon as though from a great distance.

Why learn from me?

I certainly wasn't born with the ability to draw (most aren't!) I had to learn to draw realistic eyes, as you can see below, so I can relate to where you are in your drawing journey.

These days, eyes are one of my favorite drawing subjects: I'm even working on a project in which I'm drawing over 200 of them!

Observing, studying, photographing, analyzing and drawing this many eyes has given me the opportunity to deconstruct my process and design exercises to study each component. I can't wait to share my findings with you, and help you transform your eye drawings, just like I did, and as my students have!
