I had originally illustrated her when I was living in New York, 2 years ago. I wasn’t blogging very frequently (It was my first time in New York, you see, and there was so much to do!), but I was drawing a lot, all the time and everywhere!

One of my best friends from there loved this illustration and she would always mention it in our emails and chats. I had forgotten about it for a while until this morning. For some reason, I woke up thinking about it! It took me a while to find it among my several back up folders, but here it is! :0) Looking at it makes me happy. It brings back a lot of good memories.

See it in my shop here.

Lots of love,

New shop opening soon

I have received the most beautiful art prints for my new shop! I am opening an Etsy shop very soon and I’m stocking up on lots of fabulous goodies.

Here is a sneak peek of my Vintage Girls. They were printed on gorgeous Tintoretto Gesso paper, which is one of my favourite papers ever! It has a delicious texture that brings out the colors beautifully.

I illustrated these girls a while back but I’m still very proud of them. They seem to be rather popular too, which is so flattering! I think the soft tones and the details make this a very feminine piece. It looks quite lovely on a nice frame, I must say.

Stay tuned for more news about my Etsy shop. There will be lots of beautiful art there, as well as custom-made pieces to order. I have loved Etsy for years now (who hasn’t?) and I am beyond excited to be opening my own shop! I’ll let you all know as soon as it’s ready.

Lots of love from England.

Sisters

Hi everyone!

Let me introduce you to my Sisters. Say hello to them!

Sisters

These girls were inspired by European winters, in particular by a trip to Moscow that I went on last year. All the women looked so beautiful and elegant in their fur coats, I just had to draw them!

I decided to keep it in black and white and focus on the lines as much as possible. I wanted to recreate the look of the different textures I saw. In the end it worked like therapy for me: drawing line after line, detail after detail, adding in the shading and the volume, slowly building the illustration on paper… It’s my favourite process in the world!

Anyway, I’ve had this illustration for quite a while now and recently decided to put it on Society 6. I like the quality and the variety of products they have on offer and I LOVE to see my drawings applied to real objects! When I’m drawing I don’t really think about how my illustration would look as a wall clock or as a handbag, so it’s always an exciting surprise!

My Sisters are now available for purchase as art prints (framed or not, you choose!), as tote bags in various sizes, as wall clocks, pillows and a bunch of other nice goodies for you and your home!
