There is often something quite charming about the modern twist to classical illustrations, especially when they are done for children’s rooms. It’s something that I find ties together the old with the new and is the perfect way to say ‘Welcome to the world’. That is one of the main reasons I am so captivated with the traditional nursery art work from Paola Zakimi.
Originally from beautiful Argentina, Paola specialises in the most beautiful paintings, drawings and illustrations, which is one of the most beautiful things about her art really, it’s so natural. One of my favourite collections is the ABC collection, I just love the adorable animals, and what I love even more is that if you choose a piece of art work to go in your child’s room and still feel that you are missing that special touch, you can tie everything in with an adorable handmade clay figure that has been painted by Paola to compliment. Perfect!
If you want to view more of Paola’s work (and I strongly recommend that you do!) you can find her here and you can purchase from her Etsy shop Holli.
