On any given day, Jenny Garrity (b. 1979) will invariably be found drawing, seated with her nose so close the surface of the page it seems as if she herself is emerging from it, part of the family of gnome-like figures she creates.

With delicate, hair-thin lines, forms develop from the accumulation of marks, each topped with a domed, bald head and faint facial features, full of expressive force. In her own private, self-contained way, Garrity has conversations with these little communities she creates, often seeming to chat with them while they come to life, populating her page.
