WOMEN I KNOW :: LEONIE

with 4 comments

How grateful I am that the online connections I’ve made, transfer so beautifully into real life ones, I know most people say that but it’s so true.

Leonie is one such lady. Full of creative sprit, full of adventures I can only dream of doing, full of stories and support. And total joy.

Last week I tagged along on her brilliant (wish I’d thought of it) project, to travel to the ends of the tube line here in London.

I’ll share more of my adventure with her in an another post… but for now… these are the portraits we created… for my Women I Know series.

And then of course… we had playtime, and GIFs were conceived… they vaguely transfer what I see in my head, which is often movement rather than a static image… I love how Leonie added her own little spark by making faces instead of taking it seriously…

If they make you smile, then the job is done, creativity isn’t all about serious ART, it’s about reflecting people as they really are… and that’s why these are very much Leonie.
