This collection of mind blowing portrait paintings have been created by professional painter Alyssa Monks. She works primarily with oil on linen, Alyssa creates the most beautiful paintings I have come across in a long long time.
My intention is to transfer the intimacy and vulnerability of my human experience into a painted surface. I like mine to be as intimate as possible, each brush stroke like a fossil, recording every gesture and decision.
