She started her artistic journey back when she was a little girl when she first learned how to hold a pencil. Working hard all these years, she perfected her talent to the maximum and gained much confidence. It is such a blessing to follow your passion and do what you love the most, right?
She begins her project by receiving a photograph she needs to recreate. Then with a graphite pencil, she makes a rough sketch, and only after that she starts focusing on the details. As she explained, she makes an extra effort to create the eyes, which are the mirror of the soul.
