ISABEL JANE MARVEL

Isabel Jane was born and continues to live in New York (with stints in Paris, San Francisco, and Puerto Rico). 

 

In a museum she is more likely to draw the other art enthusiasts than document what's on the walls.

People are her biggest inspiration and source of information. Each nose, each hand position — whether clutching a museum map or a tall skinny "light-on-the-foam" latte — reveal so much about a person. Each attribute a visual encyclopedia. "Why make anything up?" She will argue. It's all right in front of you —walking their dog or shaking out the morning paper on a park bench.

This website documents commissioned works, personal projects, and snippets of ongoing sketchbooks. Really any instance when hand introduces pen to paper.

Open to commissions.
