Michael Amarantos: A Style that Splendidly Breaths Life Onto the Canvas

Today I'm so excited and thrilled to introduce you to the newest inspirational work by Greek painter Michael Amarantos, "Aspects" (of the natural and human world). Based in Athens, Greece, Michael Amarantos is one of the most innovative and influential artists around the globe. His vast oeuvre encompasses painting, drawing, sculpture, and graphic arts. His varied subjects comprise nature, still life, portraiture, and domestic interiors.
I love the gorgeous bold paint application, the composition and luscious colours, the patterns, the energy, the emotion.

Michael Amarantos always manages to bring out a touch of magic. His remarkable work reflects an essential harmony between surreal elegance and realism and reveals that nature and humanity are one. I utterly love his unique and beautiful way to express himself.

We hope you'll be able to get some sort of inspiration of his magnificent work.

Thank you so much, Michael! We're so lucky to have you out there.

Things and People (2014)

Well, hello there. Today I wanted to share with you my new photo project that I originally planned on starting in September. I overestimated my personal time management skills and abilities. (I often find myself running out of time...it seems that there's just never enough time in the day to get everything done.)
So, my new project? Things and People Project: This project is an attempt to document everyday people, things, and moments through the lens.
One of the greatest things about photography is...

Five Things Tuesday

A random girl on the street. I love her skirt! 
A statement piece can transform a plain living space into a cozy living room. Zara Home Accessories: Metal and wood world globe/Decorative animal figure. 
Squash season. Winter squash is more than just pumpkins. Valued as a nourishing convenience food long before freezers came along, squashes will store for three months or more, bringing a splash of colour to the kitchen or wherever you like, and will last well once cut. Squash anyone? I love this soup
French Macaron. How delicate do these guys look. I think they look magical! I love their pastel colours.
Digging through photos: St. James's Park, London, England.

St. James's Park is the oldest Royal Park in the City of Westminster, central London and one of the city's most desirable walking locations.

Hope your week is off to a good start. Have a great Tuesday! xx

Five Things Tuesday

Lacoste 'Playground' Magazine.


I've been a magazine lover all my life. I love magazines that are really creative and artistic in their visual style. I definitely enjoy the layout, content and images of my favourite magazines. I love art magazines, interior design magazines, photography magazines and food magazines; I can't imagine not having certain magazines to hold and smell...
In this digital age print media still matters. I strongly believe there will always be a place for print media.
One of my favourite quotes. I need to keep reminding myself of that.

Don't mess with my morning coffee!

Hey there! Hope your week is off to a good start. Have a great Tuesday! xx

P.S. On Positive. Find a place inside where there's joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.
