My New Dawn

After contracting a rare autoimmune disease, caused by daily exposure to solvents, I decided to research the use of products that are safe, both to work with and to use in one’s home. This course is packed with new innovative ideas, the latest trends in colours, paint finished objects and decorative art pieces to take home.
