PRECIOUS LIFE is a series of portraits ,inspired by the work of photographer S.Stein.
The Artist wants to "spend time" with these faces of homeless woman, whom mostly reside on Skid Row in L.A.
Living many years in San Diego,Southern California ,it was shocking to witness the amount of people, having to live on the streets.
Instead of looking away, like most folk do, the artist wants to look at the hidden beauty, transport emotions, finally "humanise" them again .
Complex stories and faces, riddled with drug abuse and mental illness, personal traumas ,but nonetheless beautiful in their own way.
At times glowing, at times saddened, but always precious.
All drawings are set in silver or gold leaf.
