Fancified Portrait from Photo
I will draw a portrait of a single individual after you provide me with a photo. I will consult with you about this person's interests and personality via phone or skype in order to figure out what flowers and/or random objects should adorn this person's image. These images tend to be fairly flattering (excess wrinkles edited out, etc) but I can get much more true-to-life (warts'n'all) if you ask.
The goal of my finished work will be to show off and celebrate aspects of the person I draw that don't get seen as much as they should. I like to imagine that you'll see yourself as a little more beautiful than you used to after I draw you.
I reserve the right to save a digital copy of the artwork as a means to advertise my skills. You keep the original. if I mail it, you pay postage.
Training & Qualifications
I am a lifelong artist. I'm taking my time to practice using these skills in a professional capacity as I work toward getting a tattoo apprenticeship and getting my dream career up and running. I specialize in custom work so if you don't see something listed but you like my style, send me a message with your idea!
Availability & Preferences
Contact me whenever. I'll get back to you ASAP! The artwork itself takes up to ten days before I can deliver/mail.

About Alexis Heikkinen
Thirtysomething lady-of-sorts living in a trailer trying to get an apprenticeship to tattoo. I live with my boyfriend and his dog. I try to eat lots of vegetables. I like to paint and draw. ...I pretend to play the ukulele. I care a lot about people's feelings. Unless I'm really tired. I am really into meditation and tai chi. Technically I am a Reiki II practitioner but I do not actively practice. Man, I'd really like to start practicing Reiki again. That'd be nice. Why'd I ever stop? Why do we ever stop these things that are good for us? "no time." ha, like that's a real reason. man. dude. bro. filly. frilly bro. dude bro ladypants. Supposedly if I write enough about myself that will make my profile "stronger." if my profile isn't strong enough, it won't be able to lift an elevator of people targeted by the local supervillian. NOT THAT I'M SAYING I'M A SUPERHERO. I am NOT a superhero. NOR is my profile a superhero and myself a superhero's sidekick. that would be ridiculous. My superhero sidekick name is NOT Ridiculosa the Puffball. Seriously. Very often at night, I can hear coyotes howling. they're pretty amazing. they're like, "woo, we are alive, hey guys, check out this vole we just found. woo!" and my chihuahua doesn't know whether she wants to go join them or hide in terror. We like to keep her inside when they howl. And when the big Barred Owl is hooting. but it's cool, I support coyotes and owls existentially. they both like to announce that they are alive. that's a really good meditation practice: "breathe in: I am alive, breathe out: I celebrate being alive." that's a good one. golly gee whillakers, tho, there are so many good ones. so many. show moreOpen to other proposals
