Musa Syme from ArtReach Studios was born in Sierra Leone, Africa and started drawing, mostly portraits. He loves people, their interactions and everyone’s uniqueness. Things like wrinkles, face shapes, hairlines and skin color all vary. When drawing Musa aims to find and capture those differences, which he says are beautiful.
