Kirsten Sims

Thanks to Wolf Eyebrows, I recently discovered the work of Kirsten Sims, an illustrator and painter based just outside of Cape Town, South Africa

Kirsten's work focuses on the domestic and the ordinary - well, ordinary if you live in a place as gorgeous as South Africa - and she paints in a lose, youthful style, making great use of color and light.

I'd like my house and my surroundings to resemble Kirsten's paintings, but for the meantime I just might settle for having a few throughout my flat.
