Building her up
Painted faces fill the places I can’t reach.
Underpainting layer, black and white tones.
"I put my heart and soul into my work, and I have lost my mind in the process."
- Vincent van Gogh
The feel of every line and fold is beautiful. Those messy lines on your palms to your fingertips are yours. Those creases. They are yours and only yours. They come together in a way that separates you from everybody else. There is no other person in the world that has exactly the same.
That is intriguing to me.
The feel of every line and fold is rather intriguing.

Anonymous asked: hi Elly, I've been following you for a while now, and just wanted to say that you're one of my favorite artists that I follow on tumblr! your work is not only lovely, but it has the ability to punch me in the gut emotionally (in a good way!) You also seem really genuinely nice, it's great that you have sales in your shop and are giving away shirts to your followers. I hope you enjoy your new home in Thailand!
Your note made my day. I am really touched that my work could stir any sort of emotion for you.
Thank you so much.
I have been falling in love with my new home. At night, I fall asleep with the city by my side.
I want the whole damn world
to come and dance with me
Come dance with me,
Over heartache and rage
Come set us free,
Over panic and strange
I want to see our bodies burning like the old big sun,
I want to know what we’ve been learning and learning from.
I just moved to Thailand yesterday. I will be based here for awhile. Currently unpacking and settling in. My apartment has a beautiful view.
Thanks for participating in the Art & Meow giveaway. I will announce the winners next week!
