Hand Portraits


In 2020, I started to draw hands at a time when holding hands was out of reach.

It started with grandparents holding their grandchildren's hands, and soon evolved to a whole collection of hand portraits which you can see here.

The most poignant of these were the ones that were requested of specific hands, each telling a unique story and carrying profound significance.

Every hand portrait becomes a treasured keepsake, encapsulating a precious moment in time forever.
