Diana Willard Art & Design

I'm a painter, and I'm working on redesigning my portfolio website and blog. I'm very new to the world of branding and graphic design, but I hope to create a brand identity that reflects and highlights my artwork and painting aesthetic. I'd love any and all feedback, including on the logo, moodbaord, colors, etc. Thanks!
