I’m so excited to share with you an illustrated portrait of me by Belgium fashion illustrator, graphic designer Patrick Willem. His illustrations and imagery takes you on a journey from the fashion world to a land of fantasy and vision. Each portrait has its own soul. I just loved the way he took my original photograph by Felix Lammers and surrounded me with a garland of fresh flowers, blessed by a crucifix. There’s something almost Baroque or Gothic about the illustration that feeds my soul.
It was makeup artist Yasmin Heinz who got me notice this brilliant artist’s work, from the portraits he had done in her most recent book “Painted Truth”.
I have included here other works of his including top model Kate Moss. To see more wonderful portraits and even more interpretations, visit Patrick’s Facebook page.
Although he works with quite avant-garde clients and high fashion photography, I can also imagine his work could well be adapted to ad campaigns, children’s portraits, bridal portraits, personal portraits etc. Don’t feel intimidated if you would like your own portrait done, inquire by contacting Patrick directly on email@example.com
Something special to keep forever !
