Today’s post is a small artist spotlight, featuring Kimia who is a talented artist currently living in San Francisco in the States. Kimia’s work really appeals to me, I love the colours she uses and the soft lines. I’ve chosen my favourite pieces from Kimia’s portfolio to show you, I absolutely love the pink piece with the girl holding the red roses.
