" I highly recommend Astrid!! She painted an amazing picture of my daughter's dog, she totally captured the dog's personality, my daughter LOVED it, best Christmas present ever!  Astrid was really easy to work with, great communication throughout I just emailed a couple of pics and some information and then picked it up a few weeks later.  Very easily done remotely.

" I loved my experience of commissioning artwork from Astrid. She is so friendly and helpful! Astrid worked with me to make sure that my pet portraits would turn out exactly the way that I had envisioned them. She gave me some tips & advice and then kept me updated during the whole process. I feel like I gained a friend through it all and couldn’t be happier with my decision to decorate my home with one of a kind paintings from a local artist. I gave my fiancé a portrait of his dog for Christmas and it literally brought tears to his eyes. These paintings will be cherished for a lifetime! You will definitely not regret investing in this amazingly talented artist. Thank you so much Astrid!" -Renata Henry

" I am a hairdresser for a living.  Everyday my work involves art yet people’s head are my canvas!  I love my job, and have spent the last 13 years growing my business and learning the evolving hair trends.  I found at times, charging people at the end of a service was difficult, I felt timid. 

I heard about Carolina’s course, The Confident Artist, and was very intrigued.  I felt this would be a perfect foundation tool to teach me to value my worth.  Since taking the course, I have learned techniques that help me find confidence in my work to be able to charge what I am worth.  I also have enjoyed the inner workings in myself the through out the course.  I feel I am building myself better from inside out, and facing some of the things I did not realize that were holding me back.  Not only do I feel Carolina’s program has helped me in my career, my own art hobbies, yet as well as in my personal life.

I am very thankful for coming across this course, and look forward to learning more and applying the knowledge Carolina shares.  I would recommend this course to anyone – I am a believer that life is art, to be able to release things that no longer serve us, and build a confident foundation gives us an the opportunity to be creative and successful in the way we live." -Miranda Jewel
