Historical Context:
"In my work, I'm interested in sharing the viewpoint of a photographer through the medium of charcoal. The subject of my work is often related to my life as a military spouse. The content of my images involves the way I view my husband and my life as we transition into military life...Spending a great deal of time on the drawings helps me physically retain memories I cherish and might otherwise lose since my husband and I maintain a long-distance relationship. I draw in a photo-realistic style in the hopes of bringing the viewer into a scene they can fully imagine being in." -Maria Schultz
