Spotlight: Simona Ciraolo

Prairie in Morocco Prairie in Morocco Prairie in Morocco Prairie in Morocco Prairie in Morocco

Today, we’re talking about Simona Ciraolo, an illustrator and children’s book author.

Simona’s illustration (seen above) of a little girl with a pink top knot and a tiger best friend to read books with is just… everything. It’s just like, how did she KNOW? There’s even an inquisitive lemur for good measure. I’d like to move in, please and thanks.

REVAMP! #watchthisspace

Food and Art-01

Ladies and Gents, it’s time to get down to business.

This blog has been a pet project of mine for a while now. It’s been a beauty blog, a fashion blog, a design blog, and everything inbetween. Like a pre-teen trying to find its way into a clique. So awkward. Anywhoo, the search is over, folks. This blog will henceforth alternate between food and design (my two favorite things!)

Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, I’ll be sharing my favorite recipes and current kitchen escapades.

Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, I’ll be featuring artists and designers that have caught my eye. Basically, if you’re an artist and your work makes me jealous, I’ll be talking about you. If you’d like to submit your work for consideration, give a shout.

So that’s the rundown, everybody. This is going to be great…I feel it in my bones!

Cheers!

Kelsie

Before I came across Berta Salinas’ work, I would’ve described embroidery as “kitschy” or “retirement home-y.” Clearly, I was wrong! I mean, the subject of the series of embroideries above is cannibalism. Cannibalism. She’s superseded kitsch, and I love it.

Also, Berta Salinas is a badass artist from Madrid. You can see more of her work here. She sells her embroideries here.

I mean really, the medium, the craft, the price?! Worth every penny. Sign me up.
