Innocence of Daydreaming
colored-pencil drawing
Michelle Nguyen


This drawing was done completely with colored pencils. The artist began drawing in 2015 as a way to release and reveal difficult emotions. Art remains a valuable tool  for her, and now she hopes to inspire and comfort others through her work.


Ms Nguyen is an X-ray Technician at Health Scan Imaging in Temecula, CA.  More of her artwork can be seen in this issue of The Permanente Journal.
