2012-Nude#3-Aged 19

I painted this a long time ago but I waited to put it up while at school.

Foreground made with a brush, background made with knives and sponges.

2012-The Thinking Persian-Aged 19

For no particular reason I decided to go back to Orientalism.

The Thinking Persian, 2012

FUN FACTS

  • As a child I thought the nose was an unsightly thing to put on someone’s face so I drew portraits without them.
  • Before I was born my mother always dreamed of a house full of paintings.  Then I came to do that for her.
  • For a moment, I wanted to become a forensic artist as a kid. Too many crime shows on TV.
  • I am officially a Ravenclaw.
