Sneak Peek into my Touchee Feelee life

17 Apr

Ever wondered how it’s made? Today I’d like to share a special feature with you, get to know me a little better by reading Etsy’s interview with me here.

I open up the door to my studio and share my process from sketch to final textile product and everything in between!

Black and white working together, side by side in stormy weather…

18 Nov

OK, the title might evoke scenes from the 90’s but I just couldn’t resist. Apologies if the song’s going to be stuck in your head for the rest of the day…
My Monochromatic cushion range features warm and cold tones of black and gray in my loose watercolour style.
The Star Anise and Mushrooms are from my previous range, but the Liquorice cushion (black abstract brush stroke design) and the Lemon leaf as well as the Bottlebrush leaf are new.

These pillow covers are available on my online store, sold in Rands and also on my  Etsy shop.

Let’s run away!

4 Jul

I was recently commissioned to do an art piece for a lovely lady in Johannesburg who wanted to give it as a very personal anniversary gift to her husband.

Whenever things got tough, he would say ‘shrimp boat’! Meaning they should run away together and go and live on a shrimp boat alone. I thought that’s so sweet I just had to share it!

And seeing as it’s their first wedding anniversary, paper as a gift is ideal, see traditional vs. modern anniversary gifts here.

Cabin in a Forest: a narrative in watercolour

27 Jun

Deep in the forest of my mind there’s a cabin where I collect antique dolls and botanical specimens. Today I’d like to introduce you to the specimens I’ve found.
PS. If you like my visual story, bring a touch of old world charm and mystery into your home by clicking on your favourite specimen.

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!
