* BIG NEWS! *
Tadadadaaaaaa…. From now on I will use my new 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“ feels like my artist personality. And I can tell you why:
- The name „Sarah“ is connected to the part within me that is so used to behaving the way she is supposed to that it’s sometimes difficult for me to break free from this acquired behaviour.
- But „Natalie“ is 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, very soon after we first met in this life. 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 deeply love the ocean from the buttom of my heart. I have always felt like a child of the sea, the happiest when being at the sea. The ocean is such a huge inspiration for me. 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! 🙂
