* BIG NEWS! *
Tadadadaaaaaa…. From now on I will use my Artist Name
for presenting my artwork to the world! 🙂
Read here why I chose this name and what it means for me:
1. Natalie …
Natalie is actually the middle name from my real name Sarah Natalie Bloch.
For me the name „Natalie“ is my artist personality, the brave, wild, expressive personality within me who is free to behave and express herself the way she wants to. And – as you can possibly imagine – as an artist I need this freedom to express myself artistically & to have the courage to show my artwork to the world!
2. … Sina …
Sina is a wonderful fairy character from a children book story my husband wrote for me. This children book character is a childlike, cheeky but also very sweet and adorable moon flower fairy. For me the name Sina stands for the fairylike, playful, wise, divine inner child within me (= my inner artist child), that is one of my biggest inspirations for my artwork.
3. … Larimar
Larimar is a bluish greenish shimmering gemstone. It’s also called Atlantis stone or dolphin stone. The origin of its name comes i.a. from „mar“ (spanish) = „sea“.
When I look at this stone I can see and feel – and sometimes even hear – the ocean.
I have always felt like a child of the sea, the happiest when being at the sea. Even as a small child they said about me „She’s like a little fish“ because when playing in the ocean I could hardly get out of the sea water. Also today I love the ocean from the bottom of my heart and soul & it’s such a huge inspiration for my art.
And apart from that: My eyes have quite a similar colour like my beloved Larimar gemstone. So it’s just perfect as my Artist name! 🙂
