A few months ago, I was commissioned by my high school friend Ioana to paint a portrait of her daughter, Tessa. This is Tessa, who was such a delight to paint! She is not only a beautiful girl, but a very accomplished one: she is at the top of her game in fencing in the Netherlands, and each month it seems she keeps winning amazing fencing competitions!
What a bright and talented young lady you are, Tessa! Congratulations on all your accomplishments, I wish you all the best and continued success! All my love!
If you would like a portrait of a loved one, or perhaps one of yourself to give to someone close to you, please send me a message. I would be happy to work with you and to create a unique gift that will bring joy to someone you love for years to come!

Another super fun live illustration session with my beautiful model bestie, Natalie! We did this a second time about a month ago, and we had a blast again, just like the first time! For our shenanigans the first time around, check out my post here.
We kept all the live illos to no more than 10 minutes each! I was rushing through all of them to see how fast I could go and still have the illustration look like something, haha! Even the portrait above, which ended up being the last painting of the night and our fave, was about 10 minutes! Not too shabby!
We had so much fun putting her outfits together! Here she is, with her smart school teacher outfit and cat-eye glasses, hair up in a bun, pencil sticking out, and holding one of my architectural scales! :-) The works!
And another quick burn portrait, with a different hair style.
And her carefree summer outfit, with a cute floral skirt that was the most fun to paint! And my borrowed wedges ;-) There's no shortage of wedges around here!
