Geninne Zlatkis Mexican Watercolours

September 26, 2014

Fishinkblog 8163 GENINNE ZLATKIS 3

Geninne Zlatkis is an artist, illustrator, and graphic designer, living in Mexico, married to an architect and designer, and mother of two home-schooled, artistic boys. I came across her site on Etsy where she sells a range of her beautiful prints. I think most artists would find it impossible to not be inspired with such an amazing space to work in.

From her art blog, Geninne takes some wonderful photographs of her work and the array of collected items that adorn her studio too.

Earlier this year she partnered with Magenta to create a stunning range of stamps that can be used to decorate envelopes, stickers, books etc. It’s great the way that they complement her artwork so perfectly, and don’t they just ‘sing out’ on brown paper ! You can even buy a copy of her book about making stamps here.

Below is a selection of her colourful and detailed watercolours. Again, for me, the fine painterly lines and intricate decorative qualities make these such a joy to look at.

More of her Etsy site prints, beautiful colours.

There’s such a calm, yet fresh, air to her colour palette.

It seems whatever she turns her hand to, whether it’s painting, embroidery, engraving or ceramics, the end products are stunning.

With such an amazing home, recently featured in the current Anniversary Issue of Casas Magazine, a home decor publication from Chile, more stationery notebooks and a ceramics studio on the way, it seems there is no stopping Geninne from her creating. Thankfully for us that that is the case : )  There’s an interview from Taproot Magazine here from earlier this year.

Keep up the beautiful inspiring work Geninne, I look forward to seeing much, much more.

      Thanks Karen, I often think it’s lovely to see one artist’s work assembled in one place. It often gives them an overview and they tell me how helpful it’s been : ) Thanks for your comment.

      Thanks for your thoughts Marie. I’m new to her work so haven’t seen the same progression over time as you. Some beautiful illustrations for certain and a talented and organised artist for sure

    Awesome and clever of you to feature an Etsy artist. I love the birds and all the color, it seems as if her talent never ends… she is proficient in so many mediums. Gracias Craig!

      Gracias Joy ( I saw what you did there lol) I love Etsy and have had an account on there for quite a few years now. Unfortunately it needs a bit of nourishing so maybe I’ll use this as a prompt. Glad you like the post too.
