This commission was for a client in the inner west of Sydney. The client provided a suggested colour palette and the brief that she “likes detail”. I decided on an underwater theme to incorporate the colours she specified.
I was chuffed to receive the following testimonial from the client: “Valerie Khoo is an amazing artist, she has such an eye for colour and design. I LOVE the piece she created, totally nailed the brief. I can’t wait to hang it up! Thanks again, it looks amazing.”
This is called “Coming up for Air” because to illustrate the sense of overwhelm you can feel when you take on too much – but also the anticipation of relief when you know you are finally ready to come up for air.
