I saw yikici’s art online some years ago and fell in love with it. I love the way that her figurative art includes more abstract elements or non-realistic colours, so that through it you look at the world in a very different way. When the opportunity arose to commission a painting from her I jumped at the chance. yikici took one of my own photos of the rainforest and turned it into a glorious explosion of colour. I am very happy with the result and with the whole experience. Would love to commission another painting at some point, when I can find more wall space…
