    Portrait Art

    Each portrait is designed with an asymmetrical facial design. This is done to reflect the dichotomy of self- we are all complex creatures that sometimes have conflicting ideas and actions. What we want doesn't always match our behavior.

     

    Our experiences throughout our lives can also make us feel like we learned something new about life, or ourselves, in a way that almost creates a new reality.

     

    A joyous example of this is how much our lives change after we have our first baby! Other examples could be how we've had to grow after a hardship.

     

    All of these thoughts and feelings make up who we are.
