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.
