Imbedded in art history, hands have had many hidden meanings with their specific gestures, showing many emotions and conveying life stories within their subtle lines.
When I was a child, my parents owned a beautiful Alphons Mucha print called “Catherine”. She had the most delicate hands, and I was always fascinated with the simple depiction. Since then, I have developed a love for hands’ shape and movement and the stories behind them, wanting to share their beauty and substance with the world, a new spin on a personal portrait.
As the audience, I hope to allow you to see yourself within the subjects I draw and connect personally with the strength and reality portrayed.
