Meet Portrait Artist Li Mei Norton

Through faith, self-reflection, and going back to her roots, Li Mei has found her true calling in Art. Li Mei’s genuine love for people, culture, and human connection, communicates in her paintings. She captures that special “essence” in someone, that honest vulnerability that can really be noticed in the eyes of the people she paints.
