Tuesday Giveaway and Artist Interview with Shirae!

Oh what a treat this is! I love Shirae's work and thought it would be only fair of me to introduce you to her :) She has kindly offered one lucky winner an open edition print of their choice from her shop. I am yearning for the girl and her zebra friend, which one would you choose? Simply comment below to be in with a chance, competition runs until Tuesday the 8th December.
Happy reading :) 

                                                Never Alone

Where do you work from?
I work from my home, in Tel Aviv. I live here with my husband, who is a musician and also works from home, so our house is full of music instruments and art supply…

                                              Looking Forward

What inspires you?
I am inspired by my life experiences, nature and dreams. I am also inspired by my childhood memories and in particular by the inner, imaginative world of a child. I used to spend a lot of time in imaginative worlds when I was a child. The ability to create an alternative world through imagination and to use it as a source of joy and comfort is an inspiration for much of my work.


Who are your favorite artists/ illustrators/ etsy sellers?
There are so many talented people on etsy and every day I discover new ones, so its hard to name just a few… but among my current favorites are: Olofs DotterGround Work Katrine KGemma Bear and Betsy Walton.


What, in your opinion, is the best thing about being a creative person? and the worst?!
Creating is fulfilling, gives purpose and, well, generally makes me happy!
I think that creativity enables people to grow and get better in all aspects of their lives.
The only negative side to it that I can think of is that creating may sometimes become a bit of an obsession …

                                               In Safe Hands

If one famous person were to discover your work who would you like it to be?
Warren Buffett :-) …but seriously, I cannot think of anyone famous in particular but many non-famous people will do…

                                               It's Going To Be Alright

Where would you like to be in ten years time?
I would like to be healthy, happy and doing what I’m doing now but hopefully doing it bigger and better.


  1. Very lovely works, I like the simple nature of them. And the animals. :3


  2. I'd choose Looking Forward. It makes me dream of all the things that are yet to come...

  3. I love Shiraes work, they are all beautiful....I even went into Etsy and found some more of her work that I love. I would go for Looking Forward, reminds me of myself as a child with my doll Peggy - she never left my side.
