This is Mia Cadman. Every two years of Mia’s journey through life Kelvin Okafor has been capturing her in a portrait drawing.
When Mia was 3 years old her father, who is one of Kelvin's very close friends, invited him around to meet her for the very first time and he immediately felt compelled to draw her. He saw in her a pure beaming light and just knew that it will continue to proliferate as she grew older.
This drawing is of Mia at age 9.
