Megan Diddie Draw Breath

These portraits are of good friends, acquaintances, and family. I’ve spent a significant time with most of these people and drew them while I was talking to them, while they were sleeping, in the park, at their work, in their homes, while they were drunk, and while they were visiting me. I love each and every one of them and they have their stories to tell and I have my stories to tell about them. The outline for the process of creating these portraits has been loose and unpredictable. I draw from life and I use all the lines that I put down on the paper. Portraiture, for me, is one of the most intimate ways to experience the people in my life.
