ANNESOPHIE_giveaway

Yes! This is a little #tbt from a few months ago… I wrote about French born, New Zealand based artist Anne-Sophie Adelys. Well, she emailed me a few days ago and said that after I wrote about her, so many of you showed her a ton of love and support … so she asked if she could give ONE OF YOU a limited edition print… I said, “Um, okay!” and picked this beauty, titled “1994”. Please just leave a comment below, and I’ll draw one lucky winner on Saturday June 27! Thank you so much, Anne-Sophie xo

(The print is from a limited edition of 20, and is 50cm x 60cm image but with border 72cm x 68cm – gorgeous!)
