i came across camilla engman a few months ago when i started reading the blogs of many of her fans, who all mentionned her – so i began reading her blog myself. Her artwork is beautiful, delicate and reminds me of childhood memories and dreams.

so im very excited for two reasons:

i purchased 4 prints from her shop:

and tomorrow i’ll be purchasing these:

her design for converse for the ‘red’ initiative:

“For Converse 1HUND(RED) Artists, Engman drew upon the fabled character of Little Red Riding Hood as her primary inspiration. Engman noted, “The artist’s role in contributing to a cause is to try to help us see the cause anew, to understand it, to feel it in a visceral way.” She chose the character for her pluck and bravery, her warmth and kindness, and her iconic familiarity. Indeed, the Little Red Riding Hood character appears in many of Camilla’s works as a recurring motif. “I wanted the design not to interfere too much with the shoe and to be something I would like to wear myself. The Little Red Riding Hood character has appeared in many of my paintings and drawings and probably will again. She has so many attributes that I like,” she added.”
