She made broken look beautiful,
And made strong look Invincible
She walked with the Universe on her Shoulders
And made it look like a Pair of Wings
- Anonymous I've wanted to illustrate this poem for a very long time.
Ever since a very dear friend shared it with me. Simple words. But not simplistic. I've yet to meet anyone who wouldn't be able to intimately relate to much of it in some measure. The sentiment of the poem is what largely drives my vision for portraiture.
I know you're complex.
I know there's been pain, and joy and sorrow; love, grief, and fear and excitement. My passion is capturing all of it together. My passion is honest and beautiful portraiture. STRENGTH | BEAUTY | COURAGE | CONFIDENCE
