“Cherished art becomes a portal through which we may enter the Universe… a glimpse, a sliver, a hint of our very own heaven. Artists are providing a personal journey to an emotional state of mind. Art is not a product, but a service. ” ― David Rodman Johnson

Even though the illustrations in my shop have the potential to be emotionally valuable and meaningful to you, I sincerely believe that nothing is as powerful as having a piece of art created just for you!

A piece of art that is steeped with the most important symbols of your life, and that speaks a language only you can understand. A unique piece of art that will remind you specifically, and only you, of how worthy you are, and that consciously investing in yourself and what you surround yourself with is an empowering act of self-love.

commissionimageLet me draw the poems and words that move you.
Let me illustrate and make visible the promises you have given yourself.
Let me hear and represent the stories that have impacted you.
Let me paint the deep emotions you feel and that you want to be reminded of every day.

Allow us to create magic together.

I know that the process of commissioning a piece of art can feel overwhelming and scary when you have never done it before, or are not exactly sure what you want.

Buying art is scary, and deciding to have something made just for you [when you don’t believe you deserve it] is even scarier.

Don’t worry, I totally understand.

That’s why I would love for you to reach out so that we can talk about what the commission process with me looks like in detail, what you can expect, how I can help you figure out what you want, and everything else you would like to know that you need to make an informed decision.

If you have come here in the pursuit of art that will make you feel something; art that tells the story of your secrets and passions; art that you know was made only for you – then I have a few questions for you:

  • what size should it be
  • what symbols, colours, emotions, words, poems, quotes, seasons, and movies make you feel truly excited and connected?
  • what photographs, textures, patterns speak to you?
  • what materials do you like? Acrylics, watercolours, ink, graphite, digital work … on wood, paper, canvas?
  • which style (from my body of work) would you prefer?
  • what mood are you thinking of when you imagine your piece?
  • not sure? doesn’t matter – we’ll find out together!

Once you have the answers to these questions and want to bring a piece of magic into your home – dedicated to you, or someone you love – get in touch at:

Commission Alternative 1 // Print of a Commissioned Watercolour Painting: 85 €

For those of you who don’t [want to] have the money for a full commission, or don’t need to own the original piece, I offer the possibility of commissioning the original based on your ideas and needs [as long as it fits into my existing portfolio], and then buying only the print of the finished artwork. That way you still get a piece that is uniquely yours, while I retain the original and the rights to sell it to someone else.

The Good Enough Creative

A lot of us have internalised beliefs that keep us miserable + secretly thinking that our emotional suffering is a necessary [and even romantic] part of the creative process.

It took me too long to realise how wrong this is, and it's why I've created this video series for you:
