Artfest Toronto at the Distillery May 18-20 Booth E15
Skip to Malu Designs, formerly WhimZgal Studio, is the place to find whimsical watercolours that are filled with bright, unique, fun and colourful hand drawn images.
The process starts by drawing an image in pencil on heavy cold pressed watercolour paper, adding the watercolour and finishing off with pen and ink and sometimes an acrylic highlight or two. The bright and vibrant colours are a favourite, but sometimes the odd pastel colour works its way onto the palette as well!
From the original pieces Malu Comboye is able to produce archival quality prints made with Claria inks that will not smear or fade, and now offer art card sets, matted prints and the very popular magnetic bookmarks.
Malu's background has included an extensive study of calligraphy that evolved through several creative processes including watercolours, marbling, mixed media backgrounds, paste papers, and paper making. She has also undertaken exploration of stained glass, polymer clay, creative sewing, quilting and unique knitted scarves and afghans.
Most recently she has become a certified a Zentangle teacher.
