Long time has passed since I posted my last blog entry! I’m really sorry I haven’t been posting lately I’ll try to be more active in the next days…do you remember the ‘Blogger’ days when I’m used to post almost every weeks? Well, I mean something like that :D
Anyway, I’ve recently received my copy of ‘Enchanted Forest Artbook’ and I’m simply amazed by how wonderful it is! Please, order a copy of the book through Jodie’s website at: www.laternaworks.co.uk
Amazing artwork, tutorials, wonderful artists, you don’t need more, do you? Thank you!
Wishing you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Sorry for being silent recently! 2018 was a particularly tough year for me and my family with lot of changes…not all positive. As the new year is about to begin, I want you to look for better things in life and try to leave every negative thing behind. Thank you all for always support me and my work! I definitely will be more active in 2019, with lot of on-hiatus projects to plan!…Yes, I refer to art-books mainly :)
To celebrate the changes in the upcoming new year, I changed almost all the usernames used in my Social Media accounts, in order to create a strong personal brand under the ‘flaxenhairgirl’ name.
You can now follow me on TUMBLR at: http://flaxenhairgirl.tumblr.com/

I’m sorry for the lack of updates, I’m posting this entry surrounded by boxes – in the middle of a moving right now! – but the wi-fi connection finally works in the new house and, far too late, I can promote the Enchanted Forest Artbook! This is one of my ‘not-so-secret’ projects of 2018!
The Kickstarter is online and already funded during the first day of the campaign 😀
But, there are locked tiers to discover so please, share the project: all the artists involved worked so hard on the book content!

I recently received a few requests for commissioned illustrations so I’m sharing again my prices list and information on how it works. Please, keep in mind that the available slots are very limited. Follow me on Instagram to be updated about my availability.
How it works.
You can contact me by using the Contact Form or email me at: girlwithflaxenhair AT hotmail.com. Once I have received your message, I will email you back within 2/3 working days, letting you know what I could do and if I need other info/descriptions/references to move forward. I will then email you the first sketch for approval.
Once the sketch is approved by you, I will contact you for the painting’s final price – including handling and shipping cost. I only accept payments through Paypal. During the painting process I will email you ‘work in progress’ photos. I usually post these WIP photos both on my Tumblr, Instagram and Flickr gallery. It can be requested that I do not share them – as for example if the illustration is a gift.
When the painting is finished I will email you a final photo/scan. If all looks good, the piece will be packaged and shipped after final payment has been done.

I think collaboration is great! Combining your strengths with someone else’s can lead to very good results and it’s a way to introduce your work to new audience. But, collaboration is not an unpaid job. If you are a writer and would like to contact me because you think my style would be perfect for your project, please consider my available time and the energy that a project requires. I’m usually very specific about who I choose to collaborate with—it’s more about personal taste and instinct than business. So, don’t be offended if I refuse to collaborate with you. Thank you for understanding!
All rights to the artwork are reserved to me, Natalia Pierandrei. You are purchasing a piece of art, not the right to reproduce, alter, resell, or mass produce from it.
I've joined #aprilfae art challenge by the wonderful artists Liselotte Eriksson and Naomi Nowak . I'm not sure I can create a piece of faerie art a day – this is actually my first whole illustrations in weeks… – but I absolutely adore the list and the artists behind the project ❤
April 02 – Titania
April 06 – Lady of the Lake
April 13 – Flora
All illustrations are for sale on my Etsy shop.
A new illustration is available on my Etsy shop!

‘New Horizons’. My last illustration of this 2017.
Happy New Year, everyone. Whatever it is you’re dreaming of, you can make things happen ❤
I hope you all spent a wonderful Christmas with your family and all your dearest ones!
To me, the Holidays Season is that time of the year when I can relax, eat a lot and do silliness :) Of course, I also draw like crazy and here are two of the latest images I did.
The ink+watercolor painting is a portrait of Lavinia, one of my recent OC. I love her and I love painting her! That small illustration is also fo sale on my Etsy.
The marker illustration is a fan-art of Merida. Drawing Disney/Pixar fan-art is not actually my thing, but she’s such a great character! And, that drawing is also a sort of ‘return to my roots’ piece, I mean, markers and lot of grey with just a splash of color!
I hope you like them!
On the other hand, I’ve received few requests for commissioned images through the contact form of the site. I wrote back to every one but, in case you didn’t received my replies, feel free to contact me at:

I painted some new illustrations based on ‘Young Witch/Witchsona’ theme and Lavinia, one of my new characters – I will soon post more info and illustrations about her! Hope you like them!
