I have not been blogging for a long time now. Too much caught up with other things. It was about time to do a new post here! This is a selection of my work from our last group exhibition at De Winkel van Schinkel, in Amsterdam. Which is the place where I rented my studio. I left the studio this May, time for something new and exciting! What you see here are great quality Giclée prints of my original handmade papercuts and drawings. Some of them are for sale in my shop (www.gracabrohm.com) shop: click on spider. If you have any questions, please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org

Last winter was a freezing cold one. Perfect for ice skating. This winter has been extremely mild, until a few days ago, it has started snowing and freezing. I'm not too fond of low temperatures, but I am of ice skating. Took these pics last winter. Looking forward to going there again soon!

Yvon - has a studio in the same building as I do - and her husband bought one of my Fine art prints during our last exhibition. The one with the little fox. A few days later they ordered a second one, as a present for friends of theirs. They would be visiting this couple living in the UK. And now comes the best part; their friends' last name is Fox :D Top: A picture taken by the Fox family on their trip through Lake District, UK. This is a small card, that I put into the package with their framed Gicleeprint. The Foxes took the print and card with them in their caravan when they went on holiday! I was so happily surprised when Yvon told me this. It feels good when people appreciate your work. Gives me more confidence in what I do to hear these things. So thanks for that.

Which I am very excited about :) It is not yet a pattern, but I would like to start making patterns in the future, of different designs. What medium would you find interesting? -Wrapping papers -Table cloths -Wallpaper -Tableware -Postcards -Bed linen -Do you have other suggestions? I would love to hear if you do.

Top: view from our tent. Middle: Some sort of succulent but prickly plants on a rockformation. Would like to grow these. Bottom: Nice typo on the Façade, I adore the old ways of lettering buildings.

Back home from holiday, we have been to Sardinia and it was great! What a beautiful island it is, lots of pretty places to go swimming in the sea and very very good food :D Now that I am back, I will do some blogging again. Designed these geometric shapes for our last show 'De Grote Ogen Show'(translated: The Big Eyes Show) For a collaboration between Freshco and me. I have made new paintings too, but they still need to be photographed. Hope you will come back some time later to take a look, curious to know what you think of them.

Testing my new paint. Well this was the second test. The first one looks more like a test with random squares, stripes and colors. And the swedish flag in the shape of a car, I haven't a clue why I painted that. Must be something in my subconsciousness.

The snow and cold are long gone. Although I do not regret that winter has come to it's end, I must admit it has been really beautiful and great fun. I absolutely love ice skating, but now I look forward to be able to swim in rivers, lakes and seas.

One of a kind handmade papercut, size including frame: 23x30 cm.
This is what I have been working on (amongst other things) and exhibited during the last show at our studio place. It took me some time to get the photo's right because of the shades and small details. I hope you like them. Will post some close ups later.
Very soon, prints will be available in my shop of these three! Keep you posted.
