Welcome to the opening act of WSW’s Holiday Giveaway Quartet!
Today I am featuring the amazingly talented Liese Chavez. I first discovered Liese in November of last year when I traveled to Colorado. After wandering into a cute little art gallery in Manitou Springs, I laid eyes on one of her ink and watercolor creations and instantly fell in love (and wrote about it here). A local to the area, Liese creates the most unique paintings with a storybook-like feel and sense of both nostalgia and the not-yet-explored. Since that initial haul of prints I carefully carried home from CO, I’ve invested in several more from her Etsy shop and decked out my writing space with Liese’s work.
So many elements of her art inspire me, particularly her focus on female subjects and birds as an expression of both loss and renewal. Over the past year I’ve found myself staring at one piece in particular, ‘Becoming’. This illustration lends such a message of hope, of the potential to become whoever you desire, of wistful dreaming for a future you long for. As much as this sentiment resonates with me, I know it hits home with many of you as well. So Liese and I are offering one of you a Becoming print of your own to inspire you to become your fully realized, beautiful self.
