Her photo caught my breath, there was something about the smokiness of her eyes, her lovely tattoo, her swept up hair, the softness of her face. The picture was wonderful & I knew I had to draw her. After a slightly embarrassing (feeling stalker-ish) email to ask permission, I began my sketching. And now she has made her way onto Gretel Girl's embroidery hoops! Thank you Lauren.
