Every eye has a different way of perceiving the world and capturing its beauty. Being able to share this with your loved ones is a gift.
As a child, my mother taught me to pay attention to nature; to admire the intricate details God painted on flowers, and the living jewels that insects are made to be. She learned this from her grand-mother who was a painter.
I greatly enjoy coloring, and the advantage of being an artist is that I don´t have to buy coloring books. I can color my own drawings. Scroll down to see some tips to improve your coloring technique, or click here.
When I was a nomad, I often sat in specific places and drew. Sometimes for a couple of hours. Sometimes for a week. And once, for a month.
After moving to Ibiza, I decided to make a coloring book for my aunts to show them my beautiful sourroundings.
Ibiza is called 'The Island of Light'. It has lovely scenery, not only of the Mediterranean Sea, but also of pine covered hills and old farms that date back hundreds of years. The farm houses are called 'fincas' and I live in one of them.
Ours different from traditional homes because my in-laws built it from top to bottom. It is completely self sustainable: we run on solar panels, we rely on rain water for our needs, as well as the animals´and plants´. And we filter our used waters by using a natural system.
It took me almost three years to finish this book. In the meantime our garden evolved and changed greatly. Most of these views no longer exist, which makes it even more special.
If you like coloring with pencils, and handmade drawings of unusual gardens, you will enjoy "My Home in Ibiza".
