About this print:
"Every day, after finishing work at a cafe in town,I would walk past this balcony. It was a daily reminder to be grateful to live and work in such a beautiful place. I loved the combination of plants and colourful doorways that you find here in Portugal - just seeing them brings her inspiration. It was hand drawn using photos she had taken as reference. And then using Photoshop I applied the colour, bringing the illustration to life.
About the artist:
"I'm an illustrator, born in Wales and currently living in the Algarve. I've been freelancing for the past 5 years, working hard to turn my dream of living a sustainable & creative life into reality. Daily walks encourage a constant flow of ideas; the flowers, trees, ocean, buildings, tiles, doors, people - I find it all beautiful and it's what informs the work I create. I'm incredibly inspired by my life here in Portugal and I think that it shows in the work I create!"
Why we love it:
We both love the playfulness of Rosie's illustrations of the town we both live and work in. Portugal has such stunning architecture and it reminds us to look up every once and while.
Why we sell prints:
We believe it's just as important to support local artists as it is to support local farms and other local and small business. We personally love paintings and illustrations, and we believe they are an essential part of a home as well.
