Studio notes

I feel summer is stealthily sneaking away making space for autumn. It is quite chilly in the studio and to stay warm I am wearing my dark green woolen cape which I knitted many years ago. Even though it is quite old, it is still in great condition which shows that it is a good idea to invest in high quality, natural products. Momo, my cat, also agrees with this. She loves the smell of wool and it is one of her hobbies to deposit as much of her fur as possible onto my most precious knit pieces.

Today I am sharing one of my personal projects with you. I am creating a series of leave and dried plant watercolour illustrations in different sizes for our new place. The house has a long corridor and is perfect for a gallery wall.

As with every new project, this one brings change and growth into my illustration style. At the moment I am very inspired by nature, colours, simplicity and abstract shapes. My creativity is also influenced by long walks in the forest, where I feel most alive and happy.

If the new plant art is turning out as I imagine, I might make them available for products on my Society6 shop. Get ready for lots of green and earthy colours. You can follow my current projects also on Instagram.
