My name is Masu McLemore and I'm a 22 year old freelance female artist from Los Angeles, CA. My subject matter tends to focus specifically on color. Colors that put people at ease, peace, or even make them feel safe. For me, my portrait paintings are about the pleasure of seeing; of being cognizant of the people around me and pushing to find an alchemy between the paint, my subject and the moment. I view each piece as being part of a single, ongoing work because as an artist I'm growing along with the people I paint. Music is my inspiration which is the main reason I paint so many portraits of musicians. I also draw models as well. The face tells all and I like to put emphasis on the facial expressions and strands of hair on a person.
