    Karen, so beautiful, how are you able to draw on such a tiny card

  • Thank you heaps Heidi, although this one wasn’t tiny – it was an 8×10 inch portrait, which for me is quite big (it is the size I get asked to do the most though).

    You have captured the most beautiful expression on her face and in her eyes. Her hair looks so soft and silky – I feel I could reach out and pat her.
