"Ever since I was little, I’ve always enjoyed drawing, especially portraits. There’s something about eyes. The eyes are the window to the soul. I imagine the world the person has seen through their eyes while drawing. By the time I’m done drawing, I feel like I know the person. The connection I feel while I’m creating a portrait inspires me and motivates me to draw more."
