Hey, do you recognise this house?! It looks sort of familiar, and sort of friendly too .....
yes, this portrait of my french country home was painted by the talented Patricia van Essche over at pve design, and my amazing giveaway today will give a lucky winner the chance to commission a portrait of their own home or , if they prefer, their pet!
Patricia trained in design, and for 15 years she worked in New York City as a designer and design director for Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, and Liz Claiborne. Pretty impressive!!
Today she runs pve design, and creates original artwork and illustrations for clients. This can be in the form of a house or store portrait, the portrait of a favourite pet, or decorative or pattern design. She also has a gorgeous line of stationery, selling at her etsy shop.
I love her style, it is modern, and feminine and with that essential bit of whimsy. And as she has family in France, there may well be a French touch peeking through now and again!
So what would you ask Patricia to draw if you were the lucky winner? ......
your horse, your house, your hound ..... or maybe just your favourite corner in the home?
To enter this fabulous giveaway you need of course to leave a comment below, but you can enter more than once ...
for a second entry pop over to Patricia's store and come back to tell me what you like best
for a third entry share the news of the giveaway on facebook, twitter or pinterest.
