The iheart is a monthly, photographic letter of new projects and inspiration. It's free—and you'll get a little gift too!
My passion is to paint what I find. I've lived up to the first 4 letters in my last name, from getting LOST in local parks to going on adventures around the world. I collect inspiration by exploring the details in natural shapes, colours and patterns. Exploring in nature makes me feel calm, clear and alive.
I wish to share these emotions by creating uplifting atmospheres, in spaces where we live and work. Our homes and offices are where we spend the majority of our time, where it's essential to feel our best and be productive. I believe, that surrounding ourselves in beautiful nature—whether it's real or a painting—radiates calmness throughout the room and clarity within ourselves. Similar to looking at a photograph of a favourite vacation spot, can trigger the same warm emotions as actually being there.
My designs are hand drawn and painted directly onto your wall. Colours are selected to coordinate with your furniture and help integrate the room as a whole. The result is a transformation—from a flat wall, into a three-dimensional experience. It feels like being somewhere new, where your creative spirit and imagination are free to soar...
Where would you like to be? Let's create your world!
