Every once in a while you meet people that add something to your life so that why I want you to meet Naomi. It was another amazing person, miss Rika, that introduced us last year in Amsterdam. And we met again when I arrived to Kigali a few weeks ago. Just to give you a picture, this lovely lady is hard to miss; she is tall, dark and handsome.
So besides the fact that she is funny and super nice she is extremely creative. She designs glass artwork with dots made of glass paint. The designs vary from candle lights, wine bottles and glasses and jewelry. And occasionally she goes out of the box for a side project. The first week in Kigali Nai worked on a designs for the Milles Collines fashion show in South-Africa. She literally spent day and night putting dots on dresses and jewelry, but the result was breathtaking.
Right now I am living in Nai’s room because she is out of the country for her first international art exhibition. Next week she will be one of the featured artists at an exposition at HANGAR311 in Mechelen, Belgium. So Europe this is your chance to go and check out this amazing art work! The exposition officialy opens Sunday the 24th of November and will last until December 15th . While you are at it you might as well enjoy a city trip to Brussels and/or Antwerp as Mechelen is half-way!
Normally Rika and Naomi are this lovely roommate couple that call each other husband and wife. Needless to say that Nai is the husband. And while she is out of town I got the questionable honor of being husband number 2. But this house is great fun and it brightened by Nai’s artwork. Drinking wine all of a sudden has become an even nicer event than it was before.
Oh one last thing; Rika is the manager of this all. So interested in buying something? You will need to battle this one first. Just follow her on Twitter and you will know what I mean @rikafontana. No I am just kidding she is as lovely as she looks as she looks ;).
Now dot on: www.facebook.com/naidesigns and try to become friends with these two ladies because they will make your life so much more fun. LG – life’s good 😉
