☐ Little Swiss Asian





No, I did not have a child. This is my 2 1/2 year old niece in Switzerland.
No, I did not develop a new technique, nor am I experimenting new styles, nor decided to become a professional children's book writer overnight. I was requested (by my older sibling) to create a portrait of her little girl (you know, something outside my ominous 10FT norm). It's what you get for having family - it indebts you from mental freedom, and I felt impelled to take part.
Whether little Ina's mother fully appreciated my efforts or not (or have any means to do anything with these), is of none of my concern now.
I had fun, enjoyed my new found talent, and I'm glad it's done. :)

Hello! Just found out you had a blog, and I'm thrilled, because that means we get to see more of your work. I'm a big fan and love your art and style. :)

This technique may be a tad different but it still has the Celia style that's unmistakeable. Mmm!

I'll try to contain my geekness. I have to say I love this new direction your work is taking, even if it's just you experimenting, really beautiful and powerful renditions!

Awesomeness! I especially like the curious "huh?" expression on the last one.

You already know how in love I am with these peices of Ina. She exudes personality and just so damn endearing. It's sad if your sis doesn't appreciate them, but I know we all do and one day Ina will too!
