Being one of the artists at Possum Portraits is a privilege and an honour. I strongly believe in the power of art to heal and to ease emotional pain, because it has done so for me many times throughout my life.
It is a wonderful feeling knowing that each drawing
I create can potentially help someone going through grief.
