Instagram lately

Spring is coming Homestyle Mag + drawing

Snapshots from the past few weeks on Instagram – including me putting up my latest exhibition ‘OUTLINES’. Im always so nervous setting up an exhibition – making it look good & also having all my work on display. My exhibition is on until the 8th September – more info on it here.
Gossshhhhh I love Instagram – its probably the best addiction one could have…capturing amazing moments in life and being able to look back on them so easily.

We are slowly getting little signs of Spring…which means summer…which means not having to wear 3 pairs of socks and 3 merinos every day!
I hope youre all having a wonderful weekend – today I’m working on my 2015 Calendar. So excited to see the finished product! xobec


New Art – Originals

Bubblegum Cheeks - art original by Bec Brown 3

A few of my latest works! I have started adding original artworks to the Etsy Shop – these are not made into prints unless otherwise stated. This way they are yours and only yours!
Im really excited to be producing a more abstract range as well. When I started my Etsy Shop, the art had a lot of doodling it and felt more controlled. These pieces – which have bright colours & abstract drawings just keep flowing out of me. I feel so absorbed in them. Also incorporating text has been fun! I have never really investigated typography so this is a good way to explore & start.

…Annnd I’m back!

Bec Brown + summer daisies

Well guys. Its been 2 months since I last posted on my beautiful little corner of the internet. Ive had mixed emotions about this blog and what to do next with it. By not focusing on my blog, I have created a huge amount of artwork and also had an adventure to America!
I have decided to use it more like a portfolio of my art, design & photography – instead of a blog that I update 3-4 times a week. This way I can focus hugely on my art.
I dont want to ‘get over’ posting on here and desert this fun world of blogging!
So here is a wee update of what I’ve been upto – snapshots from my iPhone…

I’ll be sharing a few iPhone snapshots of my holiday to America soon, and also all the art Ive been creating.
If you’d like to keep up to date on a regular bases with my art, I am always adding new images to Instagram & Facebook.

This Easter was all about getting off the beaten track and exploring some stunning spots in the South Island of New Zealand. Above are a few photos from the adventures! It was a terrible stormy weekend but when the sun peaks through as it disappeared behind the clouds, it gave a beautiful glow to the landscape. Those moments are what I love.
These photos were taken between the West Coast & Christchurch and also at Lake Coleridge.
Enjoy!

Favourite food places in Los Angeles

Avocado Breakfast, Los Angeles    Favourite Breakfast, Los Angeles Breakfast - Abbot Kinney Breakfass in America

The food is Los Angeles was totally worth photographing and writing home about any chance I got. I wish now that Id thought to take more photos but my tastebuds kept over riding every thought!
A few of my faves…
♥ Starling, Long Beach – A cute, American diner style place for breakfast & lunch. The super duper dessert looking breakfast above is from there!
♥ Ocean Beach Smoothies, San Diego – The biggest yummy breakfasts ever! Also I found a lemon & ginger beer drink which I purely purchased for the packaging – good if you’re getting a cold!
♥ Wabi Sabi Sushi, Venice – If you love Japanese and all things sushi this is the best Ive ever had!
♥ Number 9, Long Beach – fresh, extremely tasty Vietnamese food. Ohhh and if you go here, please try the Lychee infused jasmine iced tea.

Number 9, Vietnamese food

What I noticed most about America was the absolutely incredible service and attention to detail. They have that sorted. In New Zealand we dont tip and dont really think to, but LA hands down deserves it.
I cannot wait to return to these fave places – Ive been craving them since being back! xobec
