I recently created a big group of individual portraits for a wedding party- it was a great experience to create a consistent aesthetic, yet stay true to each person's style! Message me any time if you have an idea for your own event, I would love to work with you!
SIMPLE VINTAGE STYLE (BELOW):
For the 2017 Holiday season, I tried out a sweet "closed eye" look that is inspired by mid-century cartoons and advertising. My techniques and color palettes are always changing, and I think this style is getting even better over time!
CARTOON REALISM STYLE (BELOW):
Before I started simplifying my portrait designs, I was really into creating "cartoon realism" work, inspired by the simplified character designs of animated films.
I even created a short video to show a snippet of what the process is like! I managed to fit over 8 hours of painting into 3 minutes :) Check it out, I'd love to hear what you think!
2016 PORTRAIT COMMISSIONS (BELOW)
In 2016, I decided I wanted to scrap my current 'portrait playbook' and start fresh. As I look through these pieces, I can start to see my transition to my newer aesthetics of pastel colors, dynamic lines and poses, and a more "whimsical" style.
