We asked Billich to share his thoughts on how he captures the essence of a person when doing a portrait….
“I want to get to the soul of the person. The woman who sat for this sketch
"Angelorium" is over the moon with her portrait. I invented those things around her.
She has a touch of the aristocratic about her so I put her against the castle. It’s a
total invention. She was completely humble and told me very little about herself but
I saw something in her. I thought she was special. It was sincere flattery.”
