It’s not everyday that I get asked to paint something for a newborn. I completed my first baby commission a couple of months ago for my best friend’s daughter. I was so excited to paint something for her but was a bit apprehensive as to what but I’m super happy with the end results. 🐀🐭🐀

I love the natural world and going for hikes in our tropical rainforest. As an artist, I find much of my inspiration from nature. Our rainforests are one of the oldest in the world and it is home to many species of plants, birds, insects and wildlife. This trail is a city green lung which is such a gem and is something I am grateful to have as our rainforests are fast disappearing. Follow me into the forest and fall in love with our jungle with me 💚

For 50 days, we have been under lockdown in Malaysia. It has been a valuable time of self reflection, time spent in my head looking inwards, not always happy moments, not always easy moments, but one thing is certain is that I have made it through feeling stronger, grateful and blessed for the life that I have.

I wish and hope that we have all grown from the world’s darkest 50 days.
I am so blessed and thankful that our paths crossed in Provence 7 years ago. Thank you for your hospitality for letting me stay at your beautiful home and sitting me down to give me the best advice on life and art. If we didnt meet I don’t think this sketch of the day would even exist and i wouldn’t be the artist I am today. Thank you for being my mentor, my friend and I am forever grateful to your generous advice and support. Big hugs Mariana, love you

I think you are the only person I know who has covered the most areas of my life. You have been a friend, a neighbour, a colleague, a client and a travelling buddy. That is definitely a true test of friendship. Thank you for our friendship and being a supporter of my art. Your sincerity, generosity and kindness are qualities that are priceless. Love you always. 💛

I have looked up to you like a sister when we were kids and followed you everywhere. I have a huge scar on my head from too much play, but it’s taught me to be able to pick myself up from every fall, and that experience will always connect me to you. Our paths have criss-crossed throughout time and place and here we are both artists because you have lead the way and your courage, your independence and your free spirit, have inspired me to follow my own dreams. Thank you for our friendship. I love you always. 💕
