I have always wanted to do a piece of Princess Diana, but I did not want to do a traditional portrait, I wanted to capture something more "raw", an ode to the struggles she went through.
"All Eyes on Me" is meant to capture the sensation of being in the spotlight 24/7 but never really being seen. She suffered through an eating disorder, mental abuse, anxiety, and depression, all while showing up for the world with a smile on her face.
The text on her left side are pieces from her interview with the BBC in 1995 and her necklace is a nod at Anne Boleyn's necklace, another one of Britain's royal women turn martyr.
