Would you like a cool portrait of you, your family, loved ones, pets?
Hello, hello, it's been a while since my last post back in Hawaii in march but look what happened, it's June and it's summer!
What have I been up to? I have been travelling a bit which you may have seen on my Facebook and Instagram posts. I have visited the beautiful vineyards and forests of Sonoma County aka 'Wine Country' in northern California, Los Angeles for a brief stint, then London for a while and Italy- our beach house just outside Roma. I then flew back to Los Angeles via magical Reykjavik, Iceland and guess what? I am back in Norcal!
Among all this travelling I have branched out into Branding and logo design. (Have you checked out my new website?) I continue to journal every day as a promise to myself starting 1st January of this year, I have been painting and documenting my travels, creating special bespoke commissions for clients in Los Angeles, London and in Italy and navigating my way around my life path which regardless of a few bumps has been a great deal smoother since a tumultuous and inevitable break up New Year's Eve, yes you read correctly.
I have attracted wonderful, kind, compassionate, spiritual and earth bound solid people. I am in a new relationship that allows me to see and express my beauty, vulnerability...he's honourable and magical and a true gem...I wake up wondering to myself, "how did I get here?" and I say to myself repeatedly that "I manifested it and I deserve it". I still struggle with self worth issues but I am learning more and more that being true to myself, being clear and kind in my honesty is the only way for miracles to appear, like this one.
Still, I like to think I am independent and it is important for me to work for myself, for my joy, the thing that makes me truly, deeply happy is doing what feels natural to me. Yep, you guessed it, it's art. Every summer I tend towards creating abstract portraits. You may remember I created a special commission for clients back in London, three portraits for family members and this year I am following in the same vein but with more abstraction.
I am opening up studio time, with love, for new portraits, for you, your loved ones, your pets, friends; those been and gone, those still here. Commissions start at $500.00 for mixed media, acrylic or ink and colour pencil on canvas board measuring 30 x 50 inches approximately. I can ship to Europe and further abroad, please keep in mind shipping is extra. Keep in mind that all commissions are a collaboration project, mainly designed by YOU. You pick the colours, theme, size and budget and I do the rest. 70% deposit is requested up front to cover research, sketching, planning, material costs and time.
