“From the moment I could hold a pencil, I was drawing and creating everyday,” she writes. “Art is a direct reflection of the artist. As such, my artwork is a reflection of who I am, constantly evolving and improving and not limited to one medium or style. I let my art tell viewers a story, connecting them to a place, time and emotion. I pour my heart, mind and soul into every piece I create.”

I like it. It's unfortunate that everyone feels they have to be so critical.

I can't decide which I like better... #5 or #8. In both cases, the character seems to have been brought to literal life, with richness and depth. Amazing work!
