I dreamed of Italy

I've never been to Italy however when with the universal tool that is being photography, I lingered around photographs taken of the city. I close my eyes picturing myself among these beautiful photographs taken, learning to speak gracefully and shopping around. With the inspiration came the time to embrace my watercolor and splash them across my blank Bristol paper.IMG_6695

Well since I can't make it to Italy personally I decided to give in my illustrations another round of this adventure. That bring it to Emma who's an exchange student from France. She wanted to combine all the things that she loves in one piece on this beautiful Sunday such as bicycling the country side of Italy in her heels,visiting the local farm shop, going to buy some fresh flowers, and soaking up the air. We can tell that Emma doesn't need a special event to dress up even if it .


So far she has learn lots of sentence to get great bargains on flowers, fruits and handmade jewelry.

Emma wants you to have a great Sunday

It's All Love

Sophie :)
