My name is Lydia Hesse and I've been making art in one form or another all of my life.
I've painted different things, but I am extremely partial to this latest endeavor that I have been working on, more than any other. Rather than people and their 'Spirit Animals', I like to think of these portraits as 'Birds and Their Spirit People'. Although I paint the bird at the very end, it feels as though its been hovering throughout the whole painting, just waiting for me to finish so it may perch upon its companions head.
I would love the opportunity to make my unique 'Spirit People' paintings more available. However, the amount of work required to create one, taking into account the large size and many layers of paint in a single painting, makes it unaffordable for many.
So I'm asking for your support to fund the making of prints to appeal to a wider audience, in order that I may make a larger and more diverse body of work for the competitive Santa Fe market. I believe in my Spirit People concept. What you contribute is INVALUABLE to me! Thank you SO much!
Risks and challenges
I do not foresee any risks or challenges to completing this project and fulfilling all rewards. If there were to be any printing problems I would be in contact with all backers and keep them up to date!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
