In my opinion, less is more when it comes to red and I believe red dots, red splashes and dashes here and there are more likely to make an impression rather than an all-... continue reading

Color me...TURQUOISE, Pantone color of 2010

Not without reason, design industries have proposed a palette of extremely bold colors for some years now.

Articles made of plasticine. We need your attention and advice!

  Products from plasticine - a fairy-tale character and a vase with several colors. These are my first works in this way so please do not judge strictly, but in fact I do not think that everything is so bad :) But I do not expect big sales, because none of my photos have been sold yet :(Friends tell me, tell me about your success, what and how to do it right.
