Hello there! I'm Erika Borbely, a visual artist and illustrator, known for my whimsical creations under the name Erika's Whimsical Art. Originally from the enchanting Transylvania, my true fairy tale began when I moved to the United Kingdom in 2011 with my incredibly supportive partner. Since then, I've been living and creating here, surrounded by the beauty of everyday life, which is further brightened by the presence of Eden, my beloved sausage dog. Dogs, with their unconditional love, serve as my inspiration and role models for embracing the essence of life.
The allure of nature has always captivated me, offering boundless joy and magic. Nature, with its vibrant colors and patterns, serves as a natural remedy for our pains and a constant reminder of the privilege of being alive. This profound connection with nature reflects in my art, particularly in my flower-themed creations, which are not only beautiful but also environmentally friendly. My collection includes plantable seeded greeting cards, flower seed packets, perpetual birthday calendars, as well as whimsical wooden jewelry and ornaments.
Every item in my shop is personally designed by me in my cozy "studio" nestled in the heart of the Cotswolds. Here, you'll discover insights into my life, sources of inspiration, and my unwavering passion for art. Welcome to a world where creativity, nature, and whimsy converge in every carefully crafted piece.
