Through her work as a professional makeup artist, Therese Aanonli comes close to people’s faces and personal stories. This is why she is fascinated with faces – because everyone is unique and special in their own way, each portraying their individual narrative.
When asked about what art is, and what it means to Therese, the key words are passion and freedom. Drawing and painting, whether on canvases or faces, has been a passion since early childhood. She finds both peace and adrenaline while creating, and she feels herself developing both mentally and physically when painting. Therese believes that art is a way of looking into your soul.
Her strokes and colors change with moods and emotions, which becomes apparent when looking at her art: all the faces that twist and turn, hard or soft, like the ocean, mountains, or forest.
