To celebrate the launch of our shiny new website (and as an extra special treat for you lovely e'lifexir ladies!) we have teamed up with local illustrator 'Pictoria Victoria' to offer you a free hand-illustrated, uniquely designed, organic makeup bag when you buy any three e'lifexir body creams! (Offer now closed)
Not only do we think Pictoria Victoria is one talented lady (you'll see her gorgeous illustrations pop up on our social media feeds pretty often!), but we also think she is a true #elifexirwoman and one we are certainly proud to work with.
Below, Victoria tells us how she got into illustration and why she enjoys being part of the e'lifexir team;
"I love to bring ideas to life. Illustration is my passion and for the most part, my career has revolved around a camera lens as I have been a press, features and celebrity photographer for more than 20 years.
Since leaving the busy newsroom in 2018, I've changed the way I work to enable me to find detail and develop what I see with a more intricate and creative approach.
I'm now a commissioned artist, working with multimedia, design, video, timelapse, photography and art. I hope to take concepts and present them in an engaging way to share them most widely on socials.
It gives me a thrill to produce a finished piece, capture precious portraits and watch my viewers witness the process when I share my timelapse videos.
Sometimes even I'm not sure how the story will end myself, until I watch where my paintbrush is going.
I'm always looking for strong style trends and new materials to work with in making thoughts arrive in digital form... I especially love working with the e'lifexir brand, as I am always visually inspired by their rainbow of shades and natural ingredients, plus as a consumer myself I love using their creams in my busy and active lifestyle and totally believe in their aim to help women #maximisetheirexercise and inspire others to get out there and love their body!"
Pictoria Victoria is 47, lives in the heart of the Derbyshire countryside and appreciates the beauty of the seasons by cycling, running and swimming through it all. Antiquing, movies directed by Ben Affleck and pictures of cacti on Instagram are some of her favourite things in life! You can see more of Victoria's work on her Instagram and Facebook pages.
