Simona Cordero

I don't really know anything about this talented lady, other than the fact she's Italian, and has a Flickr stream stuffed full of incredibly beautiful work.

Mark Traughber - BLOODLE

I always struggle when it comes to finding good presents for my man. It tends to end up being something boring and practical.
This year I stumbled across the Etsy shop of Mark Traughber aka BLOODLE and suddenly the problem was too much choice!

Mark's stencil paintings are great and I love his choice of colours.
They look even better in real life, and the best part about giving these to the man I live with (after seeing his happy face when he got them, of course) is that I'll get to see them every day too!

Sculptor Elisabeth Helvin

I have to admit I can loose quite a bit of time on the internet getting tempted from one link to another. Sometimes I end up just terribly behind on what I was supposed to be doing, but more often I end up discovering some great new blogs or artists.

This was how I came across the work of sculptor Elisabeth Helvin. Her work is full of attitude and surprise elements. Angels with boxing gloves?

Take a look at her website for more great stuff.

Jumping right in

After being a blog reader and lurker for quite a while now, I am finally jumping right in here myself!
I'd like to share some of my work and inspirations on here, and then we'll see how it goes from there.

The pictures above are some of the prints available in my Etsy shop.
