Words of Celebration

I paint vibrant, colourful and abstract nudes using a selection of non-typical colours to capture the magnificence of the female form, in all of its forms.

I believe that every body is beautiful and deserves to be celebrated. Each body is a unique work of art and all shapes and sizes are welcomed here - boobs and bums are encouraged! 

Bespoke nude portraits are a beautiful and way of paying tribute to your body. They can be empowering, sensual, capture a moment in your life (like pregnancy, self confidence, post surgery etc) or simply be a celebration of your unique physical form. 

Here are Words of Celebration from some of my lovely clients.

"I saw Josie’s work on Instagram and instantly loved it. I thought her portraits were so powerful: her subjects looked beautiful, confident, empowered and fierce.

As a present from ‘me to me’ I commissioned a self portrait as a I wanted a visual reminder to look to in those (frequent) times when we women forget what super-heroes we actually are.

Josie came to my home, helped me find my ‘rock star’ pose and took photos to work from. I felt comfortable being naked around her, her warmth and enthusiasm translated into instant trust and I knew that she was going to create something wonderful. 

I now have my ‘reminder on my bedroom wall, and I absolutely LOVE IT!"

"I love the way Josie works with colours and how expressive her paintings are, especially the nude art. I was able to see my painting a few times through the painting process and could then discuss with Josie how I wanted the painting to look like.
This is really a unique opportunity and so worth the money you pay! I was always very comfortable letting Josie draw me nude and already want to order my next painting!"

"Josie’s talent is raw and unique, her series of empowered women paintings inspired me to leap way out of my comfort zone.
Putting my total trust in Josie to paint me at my most vulnerable, she discussed what colours I love, captured my aura, soul and spirit, portraying a radiance that I often fail to recognise. 
As a woman usually I avoid mirrors, am super self critical cringing at my wobbly body parts, scars and disappointed in my body for getting sick on me. 
Josie’s portrayal is just stunning, I look at “moi” feel beautiful, confident, empowered and proud of my body (rapidly approaching 50 isn’t remotely as bad as I thought).
I would say to anyone - embrace the opportunity to be beautifully immortalised."

“After seeing Josie’s work online and being so impressed with her nude portraits, we contemplated what was for us, a brave decision of commissioning Josie, it was for a Christmas present for my partner. 

The whole process was really straightforward and we instantly felt at ease and relaxed as Josie talked us through the stages involved, and various options available. 

We sent Josie a few pictures (securely) to choose from. The communication was great and Josie kept me up to date with how things were progressing. 

I think it’s fair to say that we had pretty high expectations of what Josie was capable of, but the end product far exceeded what we thought  possible, Josie had managed to perfectly capture the form and the colour palate used was amazing. 

We couldn’t be happier with the end result and would recommend Josie to anyone if they are contemplating commissioning an artist.”
