Muddy’s Journal

muddy's portrait painter

Clare Torina painted the super-awesome portrait of Jayne Bond (aka Muddy) that is the centerpiece of the bakery wall. This super-talented artist has been featured on ArtsMemphis tv and you can check out her video RIGHT HERE.

Clare does lots of paintings that spring from her own mind but is also available for portraits; she's incredibly gifted with color and mood and I personally vouch for her being awesome to work with. She was able to create a huge color portrait of Muddy from just a 4x6 black and white photograph.

Also, in case you haven't heard, ArtsMemphis has just launched an iPhone app that enables you to find all kinds of arts events in Memphis on your phone. Pretty sweet!
