365 days of giving art away. 365 days of making. 365 days of connecting with a wonderful & supportive community.
Last year, I did an art giveaway project on Facebook. Beginning on October 1, 2015 until September 30 2016, I created a new piece of art every day & almost immediately, gave it away to the chosen winner, based upon who commented on the day's post. It seemed fitting to adapt an everyday art project to a calendar that would be a part of your home, year-round. As we begin 2017, we have a lot to look forward to, we have many hopes and dreams for the new year.
My vision and motto for Persika Design Co. can be boiled down to a quote from William Morris, "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful." My aunt shared this quote with me when I was just starting to live on my own. I carried this ideology with me as I took care in purchasing the items that I brought into my home. If they weren't precious thrift store finds, I often found myself looking for items that had beautiful patterns or illustrations on them. These are possessions that I can value, not just for their utility, but the care, time, & attention to detail, an artist put into them.
I wish you a new year filled with intention & beauty!
