Chi-chi Nwanoku by Caroline Wallis-Newport
I draw portraits of people. Through studying the faces and expressions of my subjects I try to capture something of their character. Over a period of months, it is satisfying to see them gradually come to life. I am a relative newcomer to art competitions but in 2016 one of the judges at the Ilminster Open bought my drawing of Stravinsky. Another of my drawings was also chosen for exhibition at the Black Swan Open in 2019.
