i’m jealous of ronald ceuppens

I minored in print making back in my BFA days, so I have always had a place in my heart for it… add some embroidery {and a little chine-colle}, and well, I’m completely smitten! Belgium based artist Ronald Ceuppens combines lovely etchings, inspired by his daily nature walks, and just the right amount of red thread. I wish I had thought of that… it might have helped me get an A+ in etching class!

    Yay for Belgian artists! Our country has so many great designers, illustrators, artists and yet very few people know about it. Thank you for drawing attention to a great Belgian artist!

    My family was in Brussels for three years, and I loved it… Belgium really is such a beautiful country… and yes, lots of talent!

    I came across his work on Etsy not too long ago, and fell in love. It’s wonderful to see this work profiled on one of my favourite blogs! I love Cueppens’ use of the red thread- it adds an element of interest and texture without being too cutesy.

    yes – it was the red thread that got me too! and you’re right… not crafty at all.
