#Wearyourcrown♥ June 23, 2021

Have you ever wanted to be an artist’s muse? Well, here’s your chance! For my next Urban Queen series, I want to paint YOU and celebrate how you #wearyourcrown.   


Over the last year, I have absolutely adored getting to know and grow my online art community. It’s a wonderful privilege to be sharing my story, thoughts, and paintings with you all. But the Urban Queen movement isn’t all about my art. It’s about you, me, and all the everyday men and women that strive hard everyday to look after themselves and the ones around them.


The Urban Queen is about shining a spotlight on the hidden figures in our society. The everyday heroes who juggle work deadlines, nurturing the children, housework, study, or leading in their community. All while also looking after themselves and trying to make a positive difference in the world. As women, we balance all these demands by drawing on a range of unique strengths and qualities. That is the essence of the Urban Queen and what it means to wear our crown.


I have been so inspired by the many women in my personal life that I recognise as queens, leaders and mentors. I know every person is completely unique and I want to celebrate this diversity and individuality. So what better way than to actually paint real people?! 


This is your opportunity to be the FACE and SOUL of the next Urban Queen painting. 


A painting is not just a portrait, but a narrative full of emotions, symbolism and personality. To infuse my paintings with your unique charm, I really want to hear your story. Tell me a bit about who you are; what are your passions, hopes and dreams? What drives you? When have you had to face challenges in your life? How did you overcome these? Where do you find your strength? What makes you feel like a queen?  

Your story they will inspire other women to realize they too are Urban Queens!


I invite you to share your photo and story with me, and I will personally read each and every submission to select my muses. If you get selected, I will send you a print of your painting as a special gift, to say a big, heart-felt thank you for being part of the new Urban Queen #wearyourcrowncollection.


If you’d like to apply to be an Urban Queen muse, follow the steps here. And don’t forget to share this opportunity with your friends, family members, or anyone else who inspires you! The more submissions, the more beautiful, authentic and empowering stories that I might get to put on canvas. I am so incredibly excited and can’t wait to read your submissions!


So, get thinking and sharing, and tell me – how do you #wearyourcrown?
