ISABEL JANE MARVEL

Isabel Jane was born and lives in New York  (with brief stints in Paris and San Francisco). 

 

In a museum she is more likely to draw the other art enthusiasts than 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 — reveals so much about a person. Each one a visual encyclopedia. 

 

Why make anything up? 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.
