Sail or Die

Our friend Vanessa at Sail or Die makes some delightful artwork. She combines beach themes, island totems, symbols, mexican skulls and bright colours to create her incredibly fun and individual paintings. She also has a pretty cool blog too.

Vanessa is a Melbourne artist who is planning to open her own brewery!

We hope you like Vanessa’s paintings as much as we do. Hopefully we’ll catch up with her soon for an interview and she can tell you all about these paintings! In the meantime you can check her art out on Facebook. 🙂
