We launched leggings! Step into a world of individuality.

Portrait done as part of the RockFace Project.

Katie was a wonderful character, completely genuine, and just as beautiful in real life as she appears in publicity material. What’s more she is beautiful both inside and out. Her life before fame was anything but easy, yet she told me of it with a sincerity that simply enamoured me with her personal strengths, and made me realise what an amazing person she is.

Her concert rocked!

    Beautiful portrait, Melissa! Love the colors too. What medium did you use? Looks like pieces of gold leaf have been added?

    Hi Jean, yes… back to painting, but its hard having been out for nearly 2 years! I just have a rubbish heart! :-)
    This is painted in good old acrylic, I love it as a modern medium as it now so practically mimics oil paint entirely, but I am so impatient too so it really suits me.
    There is gold leaf on it, it is meant to reflect the sound of her music, and as she is from Georgia, it has an element of an old religious icon that I wanted to include.
    I hope you are well, thanks for writing.

    Absolutely stunning work Melissa! Love the way you captured her facial expression and the use of gold leaf complements the painting beautifully. I hope you never have to stop painting again, you are truly great!
