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 by Berenice, 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 she has drawn of me!
This gorgeous image captures key physical attributes (my short hair and blue eyes) and includes pretty hues of my favourite colour. The attention to detail is marvellous (those sheets of paper have actual words on) – and just look at my fabulous feather quill pen!
♥ Thank you Berenice and Ballet Papier ♥
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 a 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.
I invest time and effort into the pieces I write and endeavour to engage readers with my reviews, interviews and features. When writing, I always aim to entertain, enthuse and educate.
