Gabriella Bowden, 20, is a full-time painter who creates large-scale portraits of friends and strangers, the latter usually becoming the former. While portraiture initially began as a means to attain catharsis, it became an occupation very quickly. She enjoys the technical challenges that painting people presents but hopes to branch out into more conceptual work, and primarily views Instagram as less of a selling platform and more of a large practical joke.
