There are a lot of things that inspire me. I love to draw people, places, things that I find something deep in. I like to capture a moment and put it on paper. The thing I love most about drawing is the emotions. I love when I see something stirring in someone’s eyes and face, what is just beneath the surface, and am able capture it with my pencil. Thru my work I want to show you a story. I want you to feel, with every pencil stroke, the very emotion that I am shooting for. I want it to leap from the paper and grip your heart. I want you to feel it.
Title of the show: “Faces, Emotions, and the Human Experience” Every day we pass strangers. We see family and friends. We see faces. We see emotions. We see the Human Experience. Every face tells a story. Every emotion grips our hearts, and sings, or screams to our souls.
This fine art exhibit will run the gamut of the human experience. Those faces, and all those emotions, every story told deep in their eyes. We all have those feeling. You know, the ones that can come out of nowhere and bring such joy... or such pain. It's all here, in every drawing, captured by a simple pencil. What power the emotional soul has. Whether it’s a young boy with pride on his face, walking his horse, or the young child reacting to something that just happened, or those very dark trying times that bring you to your knees, it’s all here. Those gripping emotions that run deep in the human soul. Search the faces flowing thru this exhibit and find details in the very detail of the human experience. Face after face, emotion after emotion...Come run the gamut of “Faces, Emotions, and the Human Experience” the unique art of International award-winning artist Beverly Marshall. An exhibit you won't want to miss....

Artist participants were asked to submit the following 3 components for the “Solo Art Series” competition: 1. Their art. 2. Their artist biography. 3. Their artist statement. These elements were evaluated and judged, which resulted in the selection of the artists who will be featured in individual month-long solo art exhibitions. This was the 12th “Solo Art Series” Art Competition that the gallery has conducted.
Below is Patti’s Artist Biography, her Artist Statement, along with 20 of her images. We hope that you will take the time to read Patti’s information and to take a look at her beautiful artwork.
Patti Bradeis is an award winning artist born in Philadelphia, PA and currently living in New Jersey. She draws her photorealistic portraits with graphite, carbon and charcoal. Her techniques have evolved from studying the works of artists she admires and experimenting with various tools to achieve her desired effect. She uses photographs as her references.
Quoting Renée Phillips, Director and Curator of Manhattan Arts International, “She not only achieves an incredible likeness to her subjects, she infuses her drawings with enormous love for humanity and her drawings evoke a powerful visceral effect on viewers. She reveals truths about many positive aspects of the human experience, particularly love, hope and unity that leap into our hearts.”
I'm of the mind to search for treasured trinkets in moments that appear to be mundane. For my portraits the subjects I choose to draw cultivate joy, comfort, hope and/or encouragement in my spirit which hopefully reaches the viewers heartstrings as well. I prefer to draw children in all their transparencies, vulnerabilities and innocence because, i believe, in our core we still relate to those spontaneous, raw emotions regardless of the many hats we wear as adults.

Get out of your comfort zone and improve your skills. This is all that DRAWember is about”.
MaryJane continues her thoughts, “Around 100 artists participated in the 2016 DRAWember challenge. What is this about? The most asked question is: How do I improve my Drawing skills, and my answer is always the same: practice, practice and practice”.
