Elle Rochford's Juried Artworks

Elle Rochford's Juried Artworks
Hello! I would like to congratulate Elle Rochford on winning the "Paul A. Rochford Award for Excellence." Elle received this honor on Wednesday for her body of drawings at Hiram's Annual Juried Student Art Show.

Her choice of medium for the drawings is ink, and in some pieces she even adds color pencil. The main subject of most of Elle's illustrations is anatomy. She has a very exceptional way of demonstrating the internal organs and the...
