Sydney, Australia-based artist Kristy Griggs has a drawing hand that would make most artists very jealous. If that's not enough she's also an accomplished classical musician! Kristy is quite the renaissance woman. Those aren't photographs you're looking at. She draws hyper realistic works of art with graphite.
Kristy had this to say about her art: "I see my work as being a marriage between microcosm and macrocosm. It arrests human spontaneity and freezes it in an exquisite state of eternity. I have always been attracted to detail - honing in to find the most sublime nuances that define the human face. This compulsion has been with me since birth and I'm starting to realise its connection with the bushland where I grew up." We were very impressed with her skill. Take a look!
