“She loves the serene brutality of the ocean, loves the electric power she felt with each breath of wet, briny air.”
― Holly Black
I have had the absolute pleasure of working with Mia van Zyl on a few original artworks so far and was delighted to hand craft a drawing as a gift for her cousin on her wedding day. The concept was something so unique and it turned out to be one of my absolute favourites for the year. Her cousin is marrying the captain of the yacht that she works on and their love story is something of a fairytale.
We wanted to capture their shared love of the ocean and to commemorate the significant dates and places of their romance. They met in Porto Cervo, Sardinia, Italy 12 June 2013, he proposed in Mendenhall Glacier, Janeau, Alaska 2 August 2015 and they were married in Greyton, Cape Town, South Africa 3 December 2016.
Take a peek…
Wishing both of you a wonderful marriage and many more happy years together!
