The method of using hair as a drawing tool is a long, frustrating process involving PVA glue, tweezers and a lot of patience. 

I wanted to explore the fragility and delicate nature of hair. Using hair to draw with creates the sharpest line, which would be extremely difficult to replicate with pencil.  I was also still encapsulated with the idea of portraying a natural substance in a positive light. The hairs that I use are my own that have been taken from my hairbrush. However using them as a drawing material, does not necessarily make them seem as disgusting.
