Gypsy Caravan Toys



I have always loved Gypsy caravan art, and have recently been enjoying a book titled, "Travelling Art: Gypsy Caravans and Canal Barges". It inspired me to create these little swan toys! It's outside of the norm for me, but I had so much fun painting them! What do you think?

I love Gypsy art too. It's very rustic and cool. Shows so much character.

Those are absolutely gorgeous!

And I love how you've done something out of your usual path and done it in an awesome way and with your own style!

I've always loved the "Roms/Gypsies" esp. a caravan and I can imagine a little Rom child treasuring your art, as well as their parents. Does this mean you're going to be making more Rom inspired art, Leila? I would love to see some :)

Thank you so much, ladies!

Wendy - Yes! I've been dreaming of a separate Etsy shop, that features my less skeletal/more whimsical inspired art. So, if these types of pieces are well received, I will definitely be making more Rom inspired art! :)
