Radiant Patterned Art

African child drawing by Mira Sjogren

These are the beautiful sketchbook drawings of Mira Sjogren. The artist uses various materials like graphite, marker and paint to produce different textures and shading. And she creates an interesting balance by combining smooth-filled portraits with elaborate patterned backgrounds. Many of Sjogren’s images are positioned in landscape page view, however, she has done some in vertical alignment that are appealing too.
