Early mornings and late nights. Frank Sinatra & The Rat Pack. Cigarette stubs. Endless boarding passes. A paddling along the shallow edges. This was life B.L.


February 3rd. I shall always remember this day. It is the exact day in which my life changed. Clad in a sexy Canada goose red coat you brought colour to my life, my darling. An Italian feast, rivers of prosecco. Films, oh so many films. Icy, slippery pavements. And the best kiss any man could hope for.


Eggs in baskets. Versace on the floor. Zara Home. Endless train journeys, a few hotels. And that constant, pure, raw love in which we dove. Hungrily and mindlessly we let the currents take us deep into our love, where everything was aligned and meant to be. Where nothing and everything made sense. Because when you know you know. M.O.A.O. This became life A.L.


Spain. Italy. Cava and prosecco galore. Iberico and L’Antica Quercia and a dessert doggie bag. Flying holding hands. Meeting the peeps. Two roars of laughter filled the rooms we walked in. Gondole. Harry’s Bar and Bellinis. Our sexy BMW. Betty. Walking holding hands. Dining and lunching holding hands. Preprandial drinks at the lounge holding hands. New York. The terrace of the Crowne Plaza. Zara journey. Tiffany’s in Venice. Tiffany’s in Barcelona. Tiffany’s in Zara hands.


Stronger than ever before we are brave. So brave, my darling. We dared swipe right. Dared meet. And now we dare dream and build a future together.


Zara homes back in China. Zara homes in Europe and the Philippines. Zara Zara, which I can see so clearly now. That cheeky look in her eyes. Her mother’s face. Daddy’s girl, climbing on top of his lap as he pretends to read The Times -he’s actually thinking of last night. Her mother shining through her. Brekkies together. Facts and invented words. Three roars of laughter.


So much love, goals, and passion. And still, the rest of our lives lie ahead of us. They will be the best lives we could possibly dream of.


This is A.L. The best life I could have possibly dream of, mi amor.

  • Packaging:

    I prepare each piece for shipment with care and love. 

    Depending on the size and your location in the world, paintings with a side larger than 50 cm. may be sent un-stretched and rolled safely in a thick cardboard tube. I will help you connect with a local framer to build the support bars and stretch the canvas. This usually costs between €90-€200 depending on the size and location.  
    If you prefer to ship your large painting fully stretched we will use a freight service to expertly handle the painting and deliver it right to your wall. This usually costs between €330 - €500 depending on the size and location. Other wise, your piece may arrive in a rigid flat mailer or sturdy cardboard box.

    Local pickup is also available – include a note with your order or send me an email! I will be happy to see you here!


    I developed a flat cost for shipping abroad China based on the information from companies. The flat price is €30,00. This price cover packaging supplies, time and labor.

    If there is a large discrepancy -/+ between basic shipping price and actual costs, I will let you know via email. An additional invoice may be necessarily.

    Insurance is not included, please contact me if you’d like to add insurance.

    Once I have received your order, I will send you an email to confirm or determine a delivery date that is convenient for you. Generally, the work will be delivered within 7 to 14 days, this may vary depending on the availability and your country of residence.

    Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. Please understand that I can not get responsible for delays due to customs.
