etsy: groundwork

groundwork is the creative home of Danna Ray, a lovely artist who paints absolutely divine pictures. her work seems so embody hope in the purest form. the colors she uses are complete perfection. if i happened to be a painting, i would want to be one of hers. i don't know what it is, but i can really relate to her pictures. she's somehow able to capture just how amazing everyday life is, while keeping it simple. to me, her art is magical. i can imagine a cafe filled with her paintings. her artwork makes me want drink tea and eat cookies and read I Capture the Castle amongst the murmur of people talking and laughing. there are about a million and three reasons why i love Etsy. being able to find out about people like Danna Ray is most definitely number one on the list.

hi! i'm Lena, but you can call me Lulu. i love Frida Kahlo, feminism, art, reading, kitties, and drinking tea. i love the film Amelie and i think that the tiny traveling gnome has stolen my heart. i want to own a bookshop and live above it one day. i get quite passionate about things. i tend to think too much. i'm kind of a hermit.
