"I am a color pencil portrait artist. I have been drawing for 3 years now. I went through a difficult time in my life where I turned to art for solace and peace. It's become therapeutic for me to draw every night. After losing my father, I started doing portraits. I went through so many emotions I felt I had a hard time expressing on the surface. Art gave me a way to expose those parts myself and in my drawings is what that displays. My portraits have become a way to tell my story."
