Dali creates masterful art and improves stories due to her care and love for her work. In our project, she used a blend of vibrant colors and traditional mica pigments to bring the story to life in a magical way. She brings a unique, brilliant style of artwork which can't be overlooked by an author wanting to help their stories reach their full potential.
