Who is better to talk about your work than People you Portrayed?

I'll be Happy to draw yours

“This pose gives the illusion of sleeping, peacefulness and tranquility when it actually is just a quick moment captured in a movement that is falling. Solange did a beautiful job illustrating my image and transforming what was a plain background into a refreshing pop of color.”” 

 - Brittany Cavaco (USA) @theballerina

“Life has been a series of awakenings. To discover that I never know where the road will lead me- but to have faith anyways. The craving to expand has always outweighed the fear that would like to keep me small. One foot in front of the other in the direction of a “dream”, against all odds, snarks, and resistance has brought me to where I am today. Enjoying life and love and looking to the past as my teacher. My biggest goal now is to appreciate the small things every day- and to let appreciation steer the way. I don’t know where it will lead me but I trust wherever it drives me, will be a good place with wonderful people- just like the one who made this portrait of me.”

It’s a cliché to say that dogs are men’s best friend but actually there is no better way to describe them so I asked Sol to portrait that in this illustration. Ellie is the sweetest dog with a colourful personality and Sol’s work is a beautiful reflection of that. 
I couldn’t imagine this would be the final result on the day I simply sent a photo of Ellie I liked. The most impressive thing about Sol is that she reaches your soul with every strike of a pen and tries to put into a drawing the feeling you showed when you made your request. I remember that at the time, she only asked me one thing: “what’s Ellie’s favorite toy?”. Again, this is Sol, a pure hearted girl that tries her best to give meaning to every work she does. And that she did! This illustration couldn’t be more faithful to what Ellie is! Sol won’t only give you a beautiful work to decorate your home, she will give you an illustration that will bring up memories of the moments you spent with that family member, friend, loyal companion, etc. At the end of the day this work is not only a truthful reflection of my dog but a beautiful representation of Sol’s amazing talent.

“To be captured in art and see yourself through the eyes of someone else is an extremely wonderful and emotional experience. Suddenly, you see a side of yourself that was maybe hidden from your self perspective, or that you may have forgotten in the daily hassle. Solange set self perspective straight again and opened my eyes to see what a wonderful and strong woman I am. My dearest and heartfelt thanks to her!”
