As an emerging London-based visual communicator fresh out of university, Cara Roberts partic-ularly enjoys capturing the hidden strata of the human face. The tuition she has received allows her to fuse skills in traditional painting with those of modern graphic design resulting in photo-realistic 2D digital portraiture using ‘ProCreate’ software.
“I incorporate subjective feelings into my portraits and preserve them for later generations. I like to make full use of posture, expression, scale, negative space and semiotics to allow faces to direct narratives. I'm particularly influenced by faces that generate a strong bond between subject and viewer, thereby creating a lasting impression. I gain inspiration from photographers such as Brook Elbank in terms of concept and from portrait artists such as Marco Grassi in terms of technique”.
