Officially one of my favorite places I’ve ever gotten to stay/shoot/cook in is @lindeborgsecoretreat in beautiful #Sweden and the story about the farm (with my photos and the amazing meal I cooked from stuff found in the garden) is up on @mydomaine so you should absolutely head over to the site and check it out. Madly in love with #scandinaviandesign and #ecofriendlyliving ❤️

It's been a while since I posted a photo of myself rather than my work, so here it is. •
Hi! 🖐 I'm Magda; the artist behind Modern Emulsions.
Photo by the beautiful @aldonabcreative. •
I've been getting lots of questions lately, and figured I can make a regular thing of it and answer some. •
My most frequent question is whether I teach or host classes. The answer is no. I'm self-taught...only been painting under two years, and learn through experimentation. In my experience, it was been the single best way to create my own style, and I encourage others to play around with different mediums to find what you love. My passion currently lies in painting rather than teaching, but if that changes...you'll be the first to know. 😊
Related to this: Will I have videos of me working? The answer is no. I'm in my own world when I paint. I sage my space, listen to loud music, curse every so often, and get lost in the moment. I don't want to deal with video equipment, editing, etc. I simply want to paint. (going as far as not allowing people in my studio 😂😂). Like it's sacred or something. 🤣
Let me know if you have questions. Note: I don't answer questions regarding my techniques. I urge people to experiment to find their own special flow.
Ps. No, none of my work is the result of dirty pours.
I've heard people say that throw pillows are the stuffed animals of grown women. If that’s true... what does owning the stuffed animal store make us? 🙈 I'm scared. The good news? By grabbing just the pillow covers, you can easily cover-up your pillow hoarding tendencies without the bulk. It's a win-win. 🙌

There is no one I have more fun being creative with than my friend @emilyquinton ❤️ We bought coordinating @calpak suitcases by @ohjoy for our upcoming trip and took them for a photo shoot in London today 💕 These creative days of whimsical beauty and pastel colours mean everything to me 🎈(📷: @emilyquinton)
We’re headed out of town for some much needed R&R Friday. I know it’s only Tuesday, but I am ready for the weekend. We’re celebrating @alex.w.gage birthday and spending a few days at a B&B...with our dogs...duh. 🐶 design: @michellecgage / photo: @brianwetzel.jpeg
We spent as much time outside as we could today. 👏🏼😍🌞 (Along with every other human in Louisville 😂😱.)
I love when clients aren’t afraid to GO BOLD! Take @arseniclace for example. Girl wanted a pink sofa and girl got a pink sofa. Have you ever seen a space more magical? I think not. 🧚🏻♂️ design: @michellecgage / photo: @kylesmithborn
We love sharing different ways to incorporate essential oils into your daily routine! See more on A Beautiful Mess today. 💜✨ #ouifresh
Anyone else coming down off of an insane last few weeks? This week has started off eerily slow...but I’m not complaining. 2018 has been wild so far, so this calmer week is much needed. 👨🏻
When the time is right, we recommend swapping out “builder beige” pendant lights over your kitchen counter. Our Spadina Pendant lights 👆 are a nod to industrial with just the right amount of classic to help stand the test of time. ✨💕
Who else can't get enough of @beckiowens and @jamiebellessa designs!? #launchingsoon#rainsfordcompany
This weeks #tra#travellikeanartistinspiration post is more about a feeling in life. But we all know that that is where creativity comes from, the crevices of our real life, so it’s a very important one to observe and collect. This photo was taken in one of the most gorgeous places on earth: The Royal Botanical Gardens of Kandy in Sri Lanka. It’s an old restaurant but this is exactly what i envision our future home to look and feel like in essence. Well loved, welcoming, relaxing, full of life and color. This photo inspires a feeling and a vision and a hope for me. Sometimes our inspiration is tangible and sometimes we feel it and it’s aspirational. ......
This is part of a weekly series from my course Travel Like An Artist where i teach you to be an observer of the world and how to translate what you see and feel into art. Learn more via link in my profile. #travellikeanartist #hoopersonholiday

When you think the wallpaper is the star of the show...then you catch a glimpse of those brass chairs...then the marble top table hits you...🍊 design: @michellecgage / photo: @brianwetzel.jpeg
