Michelle Nguyen is a color pencil artist. Per Nguyen: “I started drawing about 3 years ago with an emphasis on emotions. I went through a difficult time and art really caught my attention because it was a way to express my inner thoughts and emotions that I would otherwise not be able to. My artwork carries meaning and the story of my life and my internal struggles. All my work is done in color pencils and takes about 40 hours for each one to be completed.
