This painting won Best of Show Award at an exhibit in Pennsylvania.

I am inspired by Chinese ancient paintings and Eastern European Iconography, which I have combined with my love of doing self-portrait.
By using myself as the only subject, I intend to go beyond the superficial variety of different models being painted in the same way and instead look at how a variety of emotional responses can be generated using the same subject with different poses, lighting, and environments.
