From top to bottom:
The children of a friend's friend, a portrait with messages of love and migration, symbolized by roses and Monarch butterflies.
A portrait of my dear friend Pam, surrounded by her symbols of strength, truth, wholeness, faith and ease. I call this one I am the Ocean and the Grain of Sand, as part of an ongoing poem that weaves my portraits together.
I am Earth, I am Water – a portrait of my friend Stina with her animal and plant allies, power symbols and the elements.
Portrait of my dear nephew Oskar, showing his inner world and genius around him. He is a matematician and composer.
Portrait of Tuomas, a friend's partner, commissioned as a birthday gift for him. His dreams and potentials around him, as she sees them.
