I feel like I’ve been doing solely admin work since the last newsletter! I created some new products based on my latest paintings, and that was a lot of fun! It’s always motivating to transform my work in different items. After spending a week on this and maintenance, I’m ready to move back to my drawing desk and create some new illustrations. In fact, I’m about to start the Halloween and Christmas illustrations. Yes! Already! It was fun to project myself in the future like this, and I cannot wait to share my new paintings with you!

That being said, it is still Summer, and I feel a bit spread thin. That’s why I’ll be taking a break from the nI hope you are all doing well!

Summer is definitely in full swing, with unmistakable signs that Fall is coming. Goldenrod is flowering everywhere, and its gold splashes makes everything magical. To me, Goldenrod blooms signal the second half of summer when plants are slowly starting to decline and prepare for Winter.

In the atelier, I’ve also started to prepare for Fall, and I’m working on a very autumnal painting. Here’s a sneak-peak with this wonderful moth I was able to spot, taking a rest from the sun. I love it’s beautiful pattern and flashy colours. It is so incredible to have seen it in real life. Apparently, this species, the great tiger moth, is very common in our area, but it is my first time seeing it.

Because I’ve been fascinated by moths since meeting our little tiger friend, I wanted to share this slow-mo video. I love how fluffy these little butterfly look!

And! Look at this artist’s work: how incredible is her embroidery?

I have a very exciting staycation planned: a week of drawing, sketching, gardening, good books and sleeping. Stella has been very diligent and has started prepping for our holiday!

See you in 2 weeks 🧡

I finished zine #3! This one took me out of my comfort zone as I painted animals as the focus instead of plants. It was really interesting and enjoyable. I particularly enjoyed painting the dragonfly and the frog. It was a new experience for me to look into these “animal” patterns. It’s also so nice to observe the garden in this different way.

More photos in my portfolio!

Now, I’m not sure what my next project will be. I have some loose ends to tie up. In the meantime, the garden is really coming to its peak. Look at our eggplant harvest! You can look forward to a yummy recipe featuring these beauties in July’s vlog!

I finished zine #2, and I’m now working on zine #3! It was really nice to work on plants that I know and love. It’s a different way to see familiar plants.

More photos in my portfolio!

For zine 3, I’ve decided to do something a bit different and expend my horizon! Here’s a sneaky-peaky 🙂

Besides from work in the atelier, things have been exploding in the garden. My Korean mint is quite happy and was starting to take over, so I harvested quite a lot. I cannot wait to drink it as an herbal tea. It’s quite different from “regular” mint: it tastes more like sweet licorice. It’s delicious! I had to improvise a drying rack because my dehydrator was too full!
