Artist Paola Zakimi

I came across the illustrations and paintings of artist Paola Zakimi of LaSrtaPil yesterday while I was out shopping with a new friend, Katja Behre, who is visiting from London. I found Paola's work while flipping through a DaWanda lookbook at the Snug shop and instantly fell in love. Would you like to see why?

What's not to love, right? And here are some of her paintings in-situ -- I always like to see the art living in a space to get a better idea of how it would work in my own. These paintings are very interesting... I like the contrast of the black art against the crisp white wall. Her work would be beautiful in a children's book.

Paola, who lives and works in Argentina, can be found online at her DaWanda shop, on Etsy and at her personal blog. In addition to her beautiful art, she also is a doll maker. Her drawings really speak to me... I wonder if her style speaks to you and if so, what does it say? Okay, other than "buyyyy meeeee". :)
