In her portraits, she strive to capture the nuances and subtleties that make each person special, from the lines on their face to the sparkle in their eyes.For her, a portrait is more than just a likeness; it is a glimpse into a person’s soul. She believe that the stories we carry with us, the joys and sorrows that shape our lives, are an integral part of who we are. Through her work, she seek to celebrate these stories and to honor the individuality of each person she portrays. I believe that every person has something unique to offer, and it is my privilege as an artist to help bring that to the surface.
