Charity bazaar

IWAK’s Spring charity arts and crafts bazaar

As you may know, joining the International Women's Association in Krakow - IWAK, made it living here much easier. Besides meeting and making friends with so many lovely ladies from around the world, I also had the opportunity to lead the art group for the association as well to organize the annual charity arts and crafts bazaars.

Yesterday, at the association's May coffee morning at Sheraton hotel, I organized and participated in my last charity bazaar together with seven IWAK members. 

I am really grateful for this opportunity IWAK provided for us 3rd year in a row and this year, same as the last one, we donated 10% of each sale to the IWAK’s charity fund. 

Here are few photos from the bazaar taken by talented photographer Anna Spiridonova.

 

And now off to a new adventure and a new chapter of our life. Please keep in touch and keep following me for the updates.

Lovelies for Sugar&Spice

I have to admit, I love enamel mugs and these one I've created for a special client who has a gorgeous cafe/restaurant in Doha are so special!

I am really in love with them, they look so lovely and sweet and they are going to be a perfect addition to that gorgeous cafe. So happy and honored I had a chance to design them :D

End of the school and best friends forever gifts

Latest project I was working on for my dear friend in Doha were posters digitally created in Photoshop. They were gifts for teachers and best friends. It was something that I was doing for the first time, but as I am doing a 100 days challenge making surface patterns digitally, it was really enjoyable project. Here they are:

Looking forward to my next project :D and waiting for your ideas!

Group painting and a group exhibition

Last week, my art group had a wonderful idea to meet and paint a big painting together. On the day, the weather was so beautiful, sunny and warm, maybe even too warm and we decided to paint outside. More than ten of us got together and we found a nice spot near Wawel castle under the umbrella of one of the cafe. We painted on the floor a big painting, 1x1,2m big. The painting was finished in about 3 hours and we decided to donate the painting to the IWAK (International Women's Association of Krakow) for the next Christmas Charity Auction. 

Here is a glimpse how it was.

On 2nd and 3rd there was an art festival in Osijek, Croatia called ReArt. During the festival, there was many things happening and one of them was an illustrations exhibition called Never ending story. I participated in this group exhibition with one of my illustration "Girl in a field of daisies" and my younger sister, little nephew and niece went to see the exhibition since I was not in Croatia <3.

Done is better than perfect

Hi my dear friend!

My new resolution is "Done i better than perfect" and yesterday was the 50th of 100 days challenge I am doing with other artists around the globe. Each of us is doing their own thing every day for 100 days and I've decided to make surface pattern designs. It is very hard to make one each day but with the new resolution "Done is better than perfect" it works just fine ;)

 

You can see all of them on my Instagram account or on my Facebook Page

Last week I was participating in a small bazaar which I organized for the International Women's Association of Krakow. It happened during our usual coffee morning with 10 creative members doing arts and crafts. It was charitable event and 10% of each sale went to the association's charity fond. 

Here are few photos ;)

I made few new paintings for this bazaar so that members can see the original work not just the printed version of it. If you are interested to buy the originals, please send me an email at cherubins3@gmail.com.
