When she draws, Goetz combines detailed, intricate and smooth line-work with an absence of colour or background that adds to the effect of her pieces. Normally, with a human figure as the focus point, her works are often surreal and abstract but simultaneously pleasing to the eye. She sometimes works with an almost mixed media feel, setting chunks of colour as a polar contrast to the complexity of the line-work, and patterns which stand at odds with sketching.

Great for:

Clean elegant lines

Bright colouring

Extravagant use of light and dark
