LOVING :: Happy Block Paintings by Me We

I think these lovely Happy Block paintings are so aptly named. Michelle Atzemis of me we uses off-cut oak and red gum solid wood blocks as a canvas for her colourful geometric layered art. The range of colours Michelle uses is beautiful and she will also create an artwork to order in the palette of your choice. The simplicity and balance of the shapes and the combination of layered colours make these freestanding chunky Happy Blocks a lovely addition to any vignette at home.

Happy Monday! You can purchase these lovely artworks online at the me we shop. I bought one in aqua, soft blue and white. What colours would you choose?

INSPIRATION :: Jacob Hashimoto

Jacob Hashimoto is an American artist who creates incredibly layered and delicate wall art and installations. The form and the lightness of the repetitive shapes is engrossing and uplifting. Wouldn’t it be incredible to wake up and look up to the installation in the second image?

INSPIRATION :: Amy Borrell

These watercolours by Australian artist Amy Borrell are whimsical, joyful and simply beautiful. They’d be perfect in a child’s room in a simple white frame.

SPACE TO CREATE :: Rose Miller – Wolfgang and Rose

I came across Rose Miller’s art on Etsy and was immediately drawn to her considered colour palettes and the combination of beautiful portraits with graphic backgrounds. I fell in love with her “Strawberry Blonde” and purchased a print which now hangs in my bedroom.

It’s lovely to be able to show you Rose’s creative space because it’s so unique and special. All of these stunning paintings are created from her beautiful but compact Tasmanian Oak desk which once belonged to her husband’s great grandfather. Like many of us Rose is juggling being a full time mum with doing something that feeds her creative soul.

Meet Rose…
