Georgina Butler: Dance Writer
Introducing my simply stunning new logo!
Opportunity dances with those who are already on the dance floor so, having formed a creative collaboration with decorative arts brand Ballet Papier, I was thrilled when artist María La Placa (Berenice) arranged to use her considerable talents to design me a unique illustration.
I am extremely excited to share the beautiful bespoke picture of me that she has drawn!
This gorgeous image depicts my short hair and blue eyes and also includes pretty hues of my favourite colour. The attention to detail is marvellous. Even those sheets of paper have actual words on. And just look at my fabulous feather quill pen!
Dancing and writing both give me the freedom to be myself and focus my determination and passion into worthwhile pursuits. Berenice is just one of the many inspirational and talented people I have been fortunate enough to discover, speak to and write about through my endeavours in writing about dance. Her charming products and creative zeal make Ballet Papier a wonderful world to be part of.
Ballet Papier can trace its roots back to 1992 when María La Placa began drawing ballerinas for her young daughter, Ambar Gavilano. These illustrations proved popular not only with Ambar but also with her friends and developed into a small family business in Barcelona (María adopted the alter ego Berenice to allow her to separate her artistic styles). And so Ballet Papier was born, a brand with an ambition to unite dance lovers.
