Brandi Powell graduated from Grandview College with a BA in Graphic Design & Fine Art in 2008 and has been a freelance artist since graduation. Graphic Design is my main gig, but art/illustration is my passion. I find it difficult to choose one medium and/or style, but the female figure has always been the main focus of my work. I am a woman, I understand women and I enjoy creating work that represents what I know.
After 13 years of experimenting and learning, I am still in love with creating art. I find that my medium and style changes as often as my panties, but I will never stop creating.
my work means the world to me. i choose art everyday.
Can you create a custom piece for me?
I am not currently taking on commissions as I focus on my own creative work, but please check back.
Do you have an online shop?
My online shop is set up via Etsy.com as they take care of the vast majority of sales tax for various states, which makes like easier for me. My shop name is Powpourri – SHOP HERE. This shop includes illustrative prints, handmade products and small original pieces under 12 inches when available.
Do you draw all of your own artwork?
Yes, all of my artwork is created from my own drawings. I do not use patterns, ect. I do utilize reference poses when drawing figures as I like to have a reference for proportion, foreshortening and for hands/feet.
Do you work from live models
I prefer to work from photos. I generally schedule a photoshoot with a local model and take a ton of shots in various poses OR I work with photographers and purchase rights to utilize their reference images. I do recommend live models for those just starting out with life drawing. The camera does some shifting and distorting that beginners may not realize that they need to correct during the drawing process. I have been life drawing for 13 years, so I feel comfortable identifying those issues.
