A Devine life


pve design illustration for The Devine Life, Michael Devine, Interior Designer, Lifestyle extraordinaire!

Today is a divine day. Firstly, the artwork for The Devine Life is up and I like a proud parent am so proud (of my illustration) which you can see over here. Take a look at the shop for you will surely find something wonderful for your home. Thank-you Michael.


The Devine Life Home Shop located in Kinderhook, New York
Secondly, today is the first day of school for our village and I am so excited to begin a new year.
The back packs are full of freshly made lunches and labelled supplies, there is even a slight chill in the air this morning.

Divine! I loved the photos of Michael's home in Country Living and your illustrations are just beautiful. I wish I wasn't so far away, I would go and visit his store!

Always love your illustrations. I'm especially attracted to the balance of the aqua, black, and white in this one. So fresh yet formal.
