The artwork of Thomas Lawrence taught me how to control delicate brush strokes and how to focus on tonal detail of the skin. I am wearing school uniform to represent my identity as an international student studying in a UK boarding school. The interiors behind me were inspired by the Danish artist Vilhelm Hammershøi.
