This work is my tribute to tender and all supportive love. There is so much in the clasp of these hands. Some see an everlasting love, some a last touch before they separate. Some see just a casual entwining of fingers and some two people holding each other through difficult times. I made the hands delibirately unisex, because for me love means only love. It doesn’t have a gender or a race. I loved experimenting with colors and media. I started with a pen sketch, later it became a watercolor/digital design, which then morphed into a pattern. I like each and every one of them.
A wonderful project by Monique Carmona. She decided to publish a book filled with very clever, funny and edgy monologues, and wanted me to create a fitting cover. This was an amazing collaboration and I learned so much through this experience.

“Delicious” is a watercolor serias of three, which is devoted to the female body. My inspiration was actress and model Monica Bellucci. Her forms are deliciously curvy and soft. She oozes vulnerability, delicacy and femininity. It was a very interesting project, because I had a chance to work in depth with different watercolor techniques and I was able to try watercolor pencils for the first time. It was difficult at first, but later I got so engrossed in it that I lost track of time. I will definitely work with watercolors again! See it whole in my portfolio
My work has been featured in Los Angeles Valley College Student Show! Very excited and honored. About my photography: We all carry masks throughout the day, some carry one, some many, but we all do. Question is – who are we underneath them? Sometimes what we project is not how we feel inside, and some very colorful people can be very grey underneath their masks. Are you brave enough to face your true self?
