Giveaway Art

When I saw 'Sofia' I fell in love with her cute face, big eyes and very obvious innocenct look of wonder. I looked up the artist is and found this young woman from Tel Aviv who has a shop called Tush Tush on Etsy and who freshly graduated from the Bezalel Academy of Art & Design this year!

Tali says, "I am a freelance illustrator, I illustrate for magazines and children's books. I love working in many techniques, I love to take pictures and I love to dance."

"I really like drawing from old pictures that I come across, and to make pictures of people I think are interesting and draw them."

"I take my inspiration from a variety of illustrators and artists like Maria Kalman, Kveta Pacovska, Edward Gorey and many others."

Tali is collaborating with FairyFiligree by offering a wonderful giveaway to readers and followers! How about taking Sofia home? Tali is offering a print of an original art piece entitled 'Sofia', to the winner of this giveaway.

The size of the Sofia print is 4.5 x 3.4 inches. The technique is in soft pastel drawing, scanned and printed on high quality canvas.

I love The I Always Have Time Print


The breeze playing with her hair and she has her eyes closed as if enjoying that gentle coolness. :)

Sofia looks really cute; I like her expression a lot. My favorite painting is Sea. The colours used for the water are beautifully combined and the scene itself seems very human - i mean, it has a sense warmth and reality to it. Though, I also love the Elia print a lot too.

I love the Sundays Afternoon, it reminds me of my grandmother and her friends. I only understood about half of what they were saying, becase my Danish isn't so good!

My favorite is Sea because it captures an ordinary experience but in a beautiful way.
