“A portrait requires patience, sensitivity, and respect. Portraits are about memorializing a person, and they can capture a beautiful moment in their existence regardless of how insignificant it may seem.”

I’ve always loved visiting museums to admire the portraiture; however, it wasn’t until after I studied fashion design that I realized my own passion for drawing the human face. In fact, fashion illustration still greatly influences my artwork by adding an ethereal style, causing my pieces to feel not-quite-realistic.

My purpose as an artist is to give each person I draw a feeling of extraordinary. My mixed media approach adds a thoughtful dreaminess by incorporating gold leaf or bold paints inspired by an artist I adore, Gustav Klimt. I like my portraits to depict a sense of emotion that you can’t quite put your finger on. It may be hard to tell if the person is content, heartbroken, inquisitive, or indifferent. This subtle element allows the viewer to experience a more meaningful connection as they form a bond with my art by creating their own story. With these details, each person I draw feels beautiful—and more importantly, significant. Read Less
