For all Brave Souls

Totally love custom orders! The challenge seriously does my head in some days, but when you see the delighted expression on your customer’s face, it’s all worth it.
This lovely canvas now hangs on the wall at a sweet teen-girl’s room.
Here was the brief:
COLOURS: aqua/teal/turquoise (+2 others); FIGURE: Strawberry/Blonde hair, sassy-like, Taylor Swift-like; QUOTE: one of hope (later chosen by the customer).
Quick search of what Taylor Swift looked like (omgosh) then all plain-sailing from there.
Here is the message I received later that week:
“She absolutely loved it and told me to thank you so much! She said that the clothes the girl is wearing is so much like what she would wear and the hair is how she wants her hair! We all love it thank you so much!” P.H.

The surprising moment for me is how much I enjoy painting the HAIR! Strange, right? I totally get into the layers, the length, the movement, the colour. Totally captures my attention!

Then my beautiful customer ordered a canvas for herself. Similar brief but she chose the 2 birds stencil I already had and once again provided the quote.

Still in love with modeling paste, the colour orange and some gold texture paint for highlights.

It’s a real priviledge to make something specific to a person’s needs.

I take orders all year round but generally take a break during school holidays. Turn-around time is between 2 and 4 weeks, depending on the intricacy of the work.
All customised work is priced individually, according to how many layers and the detail required on the main figure.
