Into the Wild

27 Oct

Into the Wild is the name of my 3rd collection of scatter cushions. I’m not into wooden giraffes & African masks, but I really wanted to create a collection that was ‘wild’ and that leaned more toward the contemporary side.
Galloping springboks and jumping kangaroos, savanna grasslands and warm African portraits were born, all created by my watercolour brush. These pillow covers are available on my online store, sold in Rands and also on my Etsy shop.

Antique doll portraits

30 May

Mid May was my birthday and my husband, Louw, took me to Simons Town (40km from Cape Town) for a bit of sight seeing, lamb pies, chocolate ganache mousse cake..

anyway… (drooling on my keyboard).. He took some shots of all the vintage dolls in this cute little second-hand shop. I knew immediately that I wanted to paint them as I got an itch to paint doll faces after my doll face cushion.
So I got home and over the next two weeks I put together a body of work that consists of faces.

If you’re interested in buying one of these original art works check out my other Etsy shop: www.etsy.com/shop/theartofeuodia

Enjoy!

Doll face cushion. This one’s for art lovers.

15 May

Last week I launched a new cushion. It’s a watercolour doll face I did and then printed onto cotton and made up into a large cushion. The doll I painted was found severed in a ghost town in North-Dakota, USA.

The concept behind it was to give ‘things that people lost’ a 2nd chance.
Hope you like it!

Size 40cm x 60 cm.

Introducing my new ‘Blue Rain’ tea towel plus exhibition ends tomorrow!

9 Apr

We had a ball shooting these tea towels yesterday. But it gave me a special fussy feeling inside when we shot my new ‘blue rain’ tea towel for the first time. The lens really does put your products into the right atmosphere; and styling linen is a dream because it drapes beautifully! The ink I use is natural and Eco friendly, but the best part (and the reason it won me over) is that it’s soft to the touch – no nasty plastic feel.

I’ve always been in love with those classic French vintage tea towels. The repetition of those faded blue lines makes any brunch table classy – but they’re hard to get hold of so I decided to make my own contemporary version. You can buy directly from me, simply email euodia {at} toucheefeelee.net

The price is R185 or US$21 each. Free shipping within South Africa and shipping $10 for everywhere else in the world.

Oh, and my exhibition at ‘I Love My Laundry’ ends tomorrow – so hurry if you’re in Cape Town, mothers day is coming up…

‘I love my laundry’ exhibition – on right now!

25 Mar

My exhibition started on Wednesday at ‘I love my laundry’ dim sum bar in Cape Town (59 Buitengracht Street)! A laundry party is what they call it, complete with a washing line and vintage pegs.. It will be on for three weeks (so until 10th April 2013), so hop on over and order some of the most amazing pork and coriander dumplings you’ll EVER  EVER have… while (hopefully not) drooling over all the Touchee Feelee goodness.

Everything on show can be purchased on the spot! Also look out for some amazing work by other designers and artists like Hendriette Rademan, Heloise Bottomley, Leila Badsha and Alex Jordaan.
